Legal counsel to many real estate developers and as the former corporate counsel to the Rhode Island Economic Development Corporation (RIEDC) and the Rhode Island Senate Committees on Finance and Corporations, Rob Stolzman knows real estate, land use, government affairs and municipal law inside and out.  That in-depth knowledge helps him find fast, practical solutions and efficient strategies for his corporate, privately-held business and governmental clients in both transactions and disputes. He has represented developers of power plants, hospitals, hotels, residential housing, retail centers and industrial parks. He guided the RIEDC’s acquisition of former Navy bases at Quonset and Davisville and has shepherded numerous projects for national and local clients through regulatory and governmental agencies, from local zoning boards to federal bureaucracies—processes that required extensive legal knowledge, common sense, diplomacy and trust.  Rob also serves both trade associations and private businesses as a registered lobbyist, and has drafted and assisted with the passage of a wide range of business legislation.
