I just received word that Rob has passed away. I wish to send my deepest condolences and sympathy.
I met and spoke with Rob many times, at international conferences, Lex Mundi events, and during his visits to Tokyo. He was always calm and gentle, it was always a pleasure to meet him. I did not have a chance to work with Rob on a competition law case, but I was always confident I could rely on him and his team if there was ever a need to receive advice.
This must be a huge loss to Bowmans, and I wish to send my sympathy to everyone at Bowmans. I will miss him.
