Robert’s practice focuses on the representation of healthcare providers and companies, including hospitals, medical groups, accountable care organizations, management companies, billing companies, diagnostic imaging centers, cancer treatment centers, surgery centers, laboratories, medical equipment lessors, health information technology companies, and others associated with the healthcare industry. Robert’s legal experience includes working for the federal government, at healthcare law firms, and in-house with a national healthcare company.
During Robert’s junior year in college, he interned in the Civil Division, Fraud Section of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) in Washington, D.C., where he assisted FBI Special Agents, Assistant U.S. Attorneys, and the DOJ’s attorneys in combating fraud perpetrated against the United States. More than half of the matters Robert worked on at the DOJ involved healthcare fraud, and it was through that experience that Robert decided to practice healthcare law.
Robert attended law school at the University of Illinois. While there, he served as Articles Editor of The Elder Law Journal and as Research Assistant to Professor Stephen F. Ross. During the summer between each year of law school, Robert worked in Washington, D.C. at the leading law firm in the country representing whistleblowers in healthcare and other fraud cases and at an international law firm.
After law school, Robert served as a law clerk for Hon. W. Harold Albritton, U.S. District Court Judge in Montgomery, Alabama. Robert managed half of Judge Albritton’s docket and drafted judicial opinions.
Following his clerkship, Robert practiced healthcare transactional and regulatory law for several years in Los Angeles at two boutique healthcare law firms, representing a multitude of healthcare providers, companies, and health plans.
Robert then spent over 8 years working in-house at Alliance HealthCare Services, Inc., a publicly traded company that provides advanced diagnostic imaging, professional radiology, and radiation oncology services with operations in 46 states and Canada. First as Corporate Counsel and then as Vice President and Associate General Counsel, Robert assisted the General Counsel in managing Alliance’s legal operations.

- Structuring, drafting, and negotiating Alliance’s first international agreement to provide imaging services in Canada, navigating customs, regulatory, and tax issues
