Robert G. Maloney




Assistant: Tracey Alaspa



Rob Maloney counsels businesses and their owners in all stages of the business life cycle, including entity selection, organization and reorganization, corporate governance, mergers and acquisitions, and business succession planning. Rob works closely with business owners to develop plans that address ownership, control, management, family dynamics, employment and retention of key employees, and taxes related to their businesses.

Ultimately, Rob believes clients are looking for a problem-solver to help them find solutions to their unique situations, not simply an accurate assessment of legal and tax issues. That is why Rob aims to become every client’s “go-to” lawyer. He listens and cares about clients in a way that allows him to see the business, legal, personal, and tax issues from their point of view so that he can think strategically and creatively about how to help clients achieve their goals.
