About
I am an experienced corporate counsel focused on capital markets, leverage finance, securities, private equity, mergers and acquisitions (M&A), contracts, and general corporate governance. I lead preliminary deal contract negotiations for various business groups within an international investment bank, where I have achieved thousands of commercial and strategic outcomes on behalf of our clients.

My multifaceted practice requires a deep understanding of compliance concerns, regulatory requirements, and risk management. My legal career began as an Associate at a regionally-prominent midsized law firm where I practiced in the corporate

"Working with Robert was a great experience. He reviewed my FDD/FA and he provided a document with issues and note that was very very helpful for me. This is my first time working with a business lawyer and I am very happy with the results. He also had a long conversation on the phone to explain the notes without extra cost that I really appreciate because he clarified many points from the document. I will definitely work with him in the future and more than anything because he understood I am a small business investor in the beginning stage without experience. Thanks again."

"Bradshaw was an excellent attorney. He was very responsive and provided superior service throughout my process for FDA review, Franchise Agreement review, LLC Incorporation and state filings review, and general legal advice. Bradshaw was available throughout the process, even late during evenings and weekends to make sure I understood my legal position and options throughout my franchise contract negotiations, incorporation strategy, and the process for getting my business started. He has a great background and invaluable experience. Not only does he have a law degree from Southern Methodist University, he is also an MBA Candidate at Yale University, giving him the ability to see a client's perspective from multiple angles. I will definitely hire him again."

"It was excellent working with Robert. He answered all my questions in a timely manner and his responses on the partnership agreement he reviewed were thorough but completely understandable as a non-lawyer. I highly recommend Robert and will work with him again!"

"Robert knew what he was doing. We received the 200+ document and didn't even know where to start. Within a few days of sending the draft to Robert, he returned a heavily notated agreement that protected our company in ways we had not yet considered. He made himself consistently available to us and was always very pleasant to work with. We went into the negotiation with the Franchisor in a more powerful position due to Robert's work. It was a foregone conclusion that we retained him to lead the negotiations on our behalf as well. He is a benefit to any potential client."

"Robert was everything we hoped for and more. From our first call, Robert was attentive to our concerns, and proposed workable solutions on how to adequately protect our confidential information given our concerns. He was intimately familiar with the process. He showed an expertise during the drafting and negotiation that created a smooth process for both us and our potential bookrunners. We plan to look to Robert in the future."
