For more than 10 years, Rob Welch has focused his practice primarily in the corporate area, providing general counsel services to many small and medium-sized companies, both for profit and non-profit.  Mr. Welch works closely with business owners and managers in addressing their day-to-day legal challenges, handling business entity formation, contract review and negotiation, regulatory compliance, real estate matters, financial transactions, corporate restructuring, and mergers and acquisitions. Mr. Welch also assists business owners in addressing their succession and estate planning needs.

During the first 15 years of his practice, Rob Welch divided his time equally between the defense of General Liability and Workers’ Compensation claims (both state claims and claims under the Federal Longshore and Harbor Workers Compensation Act).
