Who is Robert Gold?

Mr. Gold is head of AEGIS Chicago office.  He has close to 25 years of experience in structuring and executing transactions on both his own behalf and for a wide variety of primarily middle-market enterprises in healthcare, technology, real estate development, manufacturing and intellectual property.

His primary area of expertise involves tax-related issues with a concentration on structuring businesses and transactions utilizing partnerships and other flow-through entities.  Robert’s legal practice also has involved corporate advice including ownership-transition planning and governance, and the private placement and syndication of securities.

Prior to joining AEGIS, Robert was a Managing Director of The Chicago Corporation, an investment-banking firm, where he currently serves as general counsel and as a senior advisor.

Prior to The Chicago Corporation, Robert had been a Managing Director of FOCUS, LLC providing M&A advisory services to private and closely held middle market companies and was a partner in XAltitude, LLC.  XAltitude co-invests in primarily technology start-ups or sole-source government suppliers, injects new technologies and then acts as an operating partner.  At the same time, Robert assisted in the sale of several intellectual property portfolios and advised clients on legal and operational issues facing their businesses.

Robert served as Director of Legal Affairs for Ocean Tomo, LLC, an intellectual property merchant bank, where he was responsible for all legal issues facing the company including regulatory, real estate and employment matters. He was also responsible for managing the firm’s relationships with its outside counsel.  While at Ocean Tomo, Robert was instrumental in its Corporate Finance Department’s sales of valuable portfolios of intellectual property for Fortune 100 companies and others.

Previously, Robert was a partner in the tax group of Sachnoff & Weaver (now, Reed Smith).  Prior to that, he was with Schiff, Hardin & Waite and Shefsky & Froelich.  Mr. Gold holds a B.B.A. from the University of Michigan, a JD from Northwestern University School of Law and is a member of the Illinois Bar.

In his spare time, Robert likes to spend time with his family and is an avid history student.
