Litigation is about solving problems and helping each client resolve his or her own unique situation. I understand that no two clients’ circumstances are the same and always strive for a solution for every legal problem.
Robert E. Gordon is a litigation and intellectual property attorney in our Doylestown, Bucks County office. Robert has represented both plaintiffs and defendants over a wide variety of complex civil and commercial litigation matters, including landlord/tenant, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, shareholders’ disagreements, personal injury, Chapter 7, 11, and 13 bankruptcy proceedings, and real and personal property disputes. Robert litigates claims pursuant to the Pennsylvania Unfair Trade Practices and Consumer Protection Law (UTPCPL), the Home Improvement Consumer Protection Act (HICPA), Mechanic’s Lien Law and the Landlord Tenant Act. Robert’s comprehensive experience has found him participating in bench trials, jury trials, and injunction hearings settlement meetings, and conferences throughout the state and federal courts of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Maryland.
Robert is a conscientious attorney who prides himself on his thoroughness, attention to detail, and ability to connect with his clients. Through his years of experience, Robert has represented clients with a vast range of social and economic backgrounds, from individuals to large companies. In all instances, Rob understands that communication with the client is critical to effective representation. Listening to the client is key. With this in mind, Robert has achieved the following noteworthy accomplishments:
- Assisting landlords in removing tenants who fail to honor obligations under lease, and negotiating modified lease terms to have tenants remain in possession of property throughout the COVID-19 pandemic
- Helped clients re-open decades-old judgments and collect on long-forgotten escrow monies;
Dismissed bankruptcy proceedings filed by unscrupulous debtors who unlawfully attempt to dodge their creditors
- Obtaining judgments for multi-national retail companies for customers’ breaches of agreement.
Along with his civil and commercial litigation background, Robert is admitted to practice before the United States Patent and Trademark Office, and worked as a full-time patent attorney prior to his tenure at High Swartz. Robert provided clients with patentability and infringement opinions and has drafted and prosecuted patent applications. Robert continues to consult clients on patent and trademark issues at High Swartz. He is an active member of the Intellectual Property sections of the Pennsylvania Bar Association, where he is the Trademark Committee Chair, as well as the Bucks and Montgomery IP Law Sections. Rob also sits on the Advisory Committee for the Bucks County Bar Association’s Young Lawyers’ Division.
Robert became interested in patents and intellectual property during his undergraduate years as an engineering major at Penn State. After graduation, Robert worked as an engineer prior to attending Widener University School of Law.
When not practicing law, you can find Robert supporting (and criticizing) the Phillies, 76ers, and Flyers, as well as the Eagles, who have somehow allowed Robert and his family to remain season ticket holders for over fifteen years. Robert and his wife recently welcomed a son, and live in lower Bucks County with their two beloved cats and dog.
