Robert J. Waldman

Bob Waldman has been practicing corporate law at Hogan Lovells since 1974. Starting as a young associate, Bob's corporate practice mentors emphasized that understanding the strategic, business, and regulatory context from the client's perspective was no less important than mastering the granular details of the corporate documents.

Serving as a trusted advisor to senior management and as a lawyer who can get to closing, Bob leads a wide range of transactional and commercial matters for private and public companies, including mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures and other business combinations, change in control matters, and complex commercial contracts. Bob also advises boards of directors and board committees on corporate governance matters raising challenging fiduciary duty and business judgment issues.

Bob worked closely with company founders and industry leaders in the emerging fields of assisted living, health information technology, hospice, managed care, and mental health management. He has served as corporate counsel to U.S. and multinational medical device and medical technology companies, and has represented government contractors and technology and services companies in various sectors. In recent years, Bob has expanded his practice to focus on the nonprofit sector, advising and handling transactions for a major health insurer, educational institutions, and foundations.

From 1971 to 1974, Bob served as an Assistant to the General Counsel of the U.S. Army in the Pentagon. Bob was an editor of the Harvard Law Review and Chairman of the Duke University Symposium.
