"Robert is a brilliant lawyer. We have worked together for almost three years in several transnational deals with medium-sized clients while I was at my previous law firm. He is a straight shooter; responsive and yet perfectionist in everything he does. His knowledge of US law, especially venture capital investments, is down right impressive. Anyone who may have the opportunity to work with him will surely be in very good hands. One of the best lawyers I had the pleasure to work with."

"I first met Robert when the Brazilian company that I was a co-founder of decided to sell a spin-off, subdivision to a publicly listed US Company. Robert was the lawyer who represented the US company. Even though he was representing the company on the opposite side of the negotiating table, I learned to respect him for his legal knowledge, business understanding and also for his negotiation skills. I also appreciated the professional manner in which he conducted the negations. For that reason, a year later when the private equity branch of a major US bank decided to invest in our company, we decided to hired him as our lawyer to represent us in the transaction. And we were glad we did. He did a fantastic job. Now that I am the founder of a new company, MarketUP, I’m once again working with Robert. I would highly recommend him. He is an excellent lawyer who not only provides high quality legal work, but takes the time to understand your business so that he can provide legal solutions that are tailored to you business needs."
