He has experience with database breach response, and the coverage needed to protect companies against computer malware attacks. Additionally, he has experience with consumer protection, consumer fraud, and receivership law.
Prior to joining Ellis & Winters, Robert practiced in the Boston office of a large regional law firm. While there, he was involved in all aspects of litigation as well as arbitrations and mediations. Robert is experienced in e-discovery, including the development of e-discovery protocols, and review and use of electronically stored information or ESI.
Before attending law school, Robert worked as a software engineer in Michigan. During this time, he collaborated with multi-national teams to provide timely and efficient solutions to clients’ issues, and built front-end, back-end and database solutions.
Robert enjoys water sports, and was the captain of the men’s water polo team while attending undergraduate school at the University of Michigan. He was also a “First Team All-Big Ten,” and he and his team members were “Big Ten Champions.” He is hoping that the warmer summer weather in North Carolina will allow him to spend more time swimming and water skiing.
