Robert Flack, Esq., CIArb
Principal, Bob Flack, has extensive experience both as an attorney and in operating management for major innovative and technology companies including Edwards Lifesciences, TRW (Experian), Mattel, and Diageo.
Before law school, Bob successfully conducted his first jury trial (pro per). As he continued his career, he became more involved in the relationship between legal issues, business management and commerce. While experienced in litigation, it’s often a better business approach to avoid circumstances which foster the escalation of conflict. Litigation costs can be managed as effectively by limiting risk as by efficient management of dispute resolution procedures.
Litigation is a powerful tool, to be used with discretion, along with the other management tools available. ADR can be an effective alternative. Also, amazingly effective can be appropriate management steps which avoid disputes before they escalate.
Bob Flack has served as General Counsel for two Emerging Growth Technology companies and has served many others as outside counsel. He began his career at Stradling, Yocca, Carlson & Rauth in general corporate law and continued with Levin & Hawes, an IP Litigation boutique.
