Robert M. Humphrey, Managing Partner, Cleveland

Firm co‐founder and head of Cowden Humphrey’s corporate and international practices, Bob Humphrey works with growing and ongoing businesses, typically as outside general counsel. Along with providing the legal services needed to establish and effectively run a business, he advises owners and managers on strategic issues such as growth, financing and acquisitions as well as on uncovering opportunities in routine transactions and unanticipated events.

Mr. Humphrey holds an advanced legal degree in corporate taxation in addition to his law degree, and began his deal‐making experience in the 1980s in the oil and gas industry. His experience also includes areas such as franchising, intellectual property and other issues in technology, services, manufacturing, environmental products and services and other industries.

Mr. Humphrey advises corporate clients on entity structure, mergers and acquisitions and financing strategies, including borrowing, angel and venture capital investment and other private and public securities, as well as advising on and handling transactions, contracts, agreements and other corporate legal matters. As part of the firm’s mission to make legal services less intimidating, he helps clients select proven outside providers and often oversees this work on the client’s behalf when developments require specialized legal or financial expertise.

Mr. Humphrey's international experience includes helping clients establish overseas offices and manufacturing facilities; negotiate import and export sales, distribution and manufacturing agreements; secure financing for overseas operations from international development organizations, the United States government and local sources; and negotiate joint and other ventures.
