Rob graduated from Calvin College in 1983 with a B.A. in philosophy and from the State University of New York with a law degree in 1986. Rob practiced at larger Milwaukee firms until 1993 when he helped form Rose and deJong. Rob represents small to mid-market companies in a variety of areas and uses his strong business background to structure complex transactions and successfully resolve high stakes negotiations.
While Rob learned much from his large firm experience, his clients appreciate his ability to provide strong corporate law skills in an efficient cost structure that a specialty firm allows. With a great team of partners, associates and legal assistants, Rob has a reputation as the “go-to-guy” from his clients when they want a quick turnaround at a fair price. Rob assists his clients in all phases of company existence from early-stage acquisitions to sale transactions. But Rob is more than a document producer and his clients rely on his ability to analyze the complex issues and help develop strategic, practical solutions.
