Bob Kasolas, Member
For over 16 years, Bob Kasolas has represented a broad array of clients across numerous industries in high-stakes “hardball” commercial litigation. Such cases routinely involve complex, multifaceted and challenging legal issues across all areas of business litigation such as real estate, corporate shareholder and partnership battles, trusts and estates, lending and finance, intellectual property protection, employment, healthcare, bankruptcy adversary proceedings, foreclosure, and complex contractual controversies.
During his career, Bob has handled over 1,000 commercial matters and has tried over 100 cases to substantial completion. Based upon his experience and large body of work, he has been designated a Certified Trial Attorney by the New Jersey Supreme Court, a distinction reserved for less than 2% of attorneys. His significant business experience and background, coupled with his unique approach to addressing clients’ personal and business needs based on the specific facts and circumstances at hand, allow him to efficiently, practically, and economically litigate any legal matter from inception to the conclusion of trial, and through any subsequent appeal. Bob routinely practices before the state and federal courts of New Jersey and New York, and has also litigated matters in the federal courts of Florida and Georgia.
In 2011 and 2012, Bob was named a Rising Star in the legal community by New Jersey Super Lawyers. He commenced his legal career as the law clerk to the Hon. Kenneth C. MacKenzie, Presiding Judge of the Chancery Division for Morris and Sussex Counties. During law school, he co-authored the groundbreaking article “Bad Designs, Lethal Profits: The Duty to Protect Other Motorists Against SUV Collision Risks.” The article’s publication had a profound impact on the automotive SUV market by influencing automotive manufacturers to design SUVs safer and more compatible with traditional passenger vehicles.
