Robb’s practice is focused on business and technology law, often for clients with high growth potential in the start-up sector. His corporate/commercial practice ranges from general to transactional work, including traditional financing and venture capital investments. In the technology realm, Robb advises clients on cloud-based agreements, and continues to follow fast-moving industry developments such as blockchain and cybersecurity.
In an increasingly “borderless world”, Robb’s clients often pursue global markets. With an active interest in foreign affairs and international trade, Robb has researched and been involved in matters relating to trade law, including the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP) and the impact it has on export/import opportunities.
Robb was born and raised in Fredericton, where he studied at the University of New Brunswick, obtaining a degree in Chemical Engineering and diploma in Technology, Management and Entrepreneurship before returning to complete a degree in Law. Prior to Law, he first worked for a hydrogen R&D start-up, and then overseas as a project/design engineer for an international natural resources company. Robb’s personal experience in the start-up sector has given him a greater appreciation for the business and technology issues his clients face today.
Outside of work, Robb is a self-declared advocate for sustainable living, working, playing and smart business – all globally but starting locally.
