Robert offers a wealth of real-world business expertise developed through many years of hands-on business management coupled with substantial academic experience teaching graduate and undergraduate business courses. He frequently tells his students and staff members that “Continuous Improvement Begins with Me,” by which he means that before organizations and companies can adopt continuous improvement, the people in those organizations must first commit to improving themselves. It was primarily this focus on self-improvement that led Robert to pursue a law degree in the weekend program at Hamline University School of Law, one of the predecessor schools comprising Mitchell Hamline School of Law. Robert graduated cum laude from Mitchell Hamline School of Law in August 2016 and was admitted to the Minnesota bar in May 2017. His primary practice areas are business law and estate planning.
