Robt. P. Baker successfully negotiated a difficult settlement on my behalf that involved corporate ownership and employment compensation issues. Decades ago my business partner and I had executed a complicated shareholder’s agreement that recently became a matter of dispute at a time when our company sold most of its assets to a new entity. The stakes were very high for me, as more than 30 years of employment were encompassed by my equity entitlement; the fruits of my entire career were on the line and the sale of our business brought with it the end of any employment or future income opportunity for me with either my partner or the entity purchasing our company's assets.
Baker articulated a deft strategy to deal with the situation and guided me through the process, at all times keeping me informed and advised of possible outcomes and potential complications. The hurdle posed by the opposition’s initial failure to favorably respond was overcome by actions that were creative and appropriate. We filed a multi-faced legal suit that involved employment law, government regulation, and statutes relevant to business practice. Fortunately, litigation was avoided, but I have every confidence that Baker would have been able to navigate that phase of the case had it been necessary.
Baker’s greatest attribute is that he is effective. His able management of my case achieved an outcome that was just and equitable.
Robert is one of a kind lawyer that hits the ground running and acts fast. He is always reachable anytime on the day and extremely responsive. He is not your typical lawyer who signs you up and changes color on you. I went to him on a Saturday morning and by the end of the day, he had performed more than any lawyer would have done for me in a week...hands down.
I was in need of legal assistance in a complex real estate matter but it was of no match to his level of knowledge and abilities. His passion and motivation to solve a case shows in the work he performs. He has been a constant fearless fighter in our case and have greatly exceeded my expectation.
I have dealt with lawyers on several occasions and I now wish I met Robert earlier. My wife and I are extremely lucky to have Robert to work on our case.
