Bob is one of those attorneys clients want in their corner through the most important matters, transactions, or transitions in their lives. He is a highly effective problem solver, analyzing complex problems strategically, then offering specific solutions and steps to achieve a client’s goals. He communicates clearly, often “translating” legalese into comprehensible analysis and recommendations so clients know exactly what their options are.
Big projects usually involve different and unique mixes of financial, commercial, legal, interpersonal, and practical issues that must be sorted through and prioritized. He always employs a “team” approach, working effectively with key business and family members, other professional advisors, and including other expert members of the Fraser legal team. Typical of competitive and busy people, Bob likes to get things done, knowing there are always more challenges ahead.
Examples of a few of his projects include the structuring of the public-private partnerships in Omaha which formed and today govern Omaha’s arena, convention center, baseball stadium, and major sporting events; multigenerational family business successions; business acquisitions and sales; business break-ups; and nonprofit organizational representation and “turn-arounds.”
Bob was a contributing author to the 2010 “Inside the Minds” series on Family and Business Succession Planning. Among his current community involvements are leadership in Omaha’s sporting events scene; and he leads the ultra complex Tri-Faith Initiative, the intentional co-location of three houses of worship and placement of an Interfaith Center amongst them.
