Robert Sanders focuses his practice on governmental, administrative and real estate matters. Prior to joining the firm, former West Palm Beach Mayor Nancy Graham brought Sanders out of semi-retirement to serve as Deputy City Attorney. In that position, Sanders was in charge of city transactions and pivotal economic development projects. He also served as a board member of the Economic Council of Palm Beach County. Sanders then became the City Administrator of West Palm Beach. Sanders was a key negotiator and advisor crafting deals in West Palm Beach, including projects such as the Convention Center, the redevelopment of the West Palm Beach Auditorium, and the city’s previous baseball stadium site, and today’s The Square, previously named City Place, a $750,000,000 development of 72 vacant acres in downtown West Palm Beach.
Before his tenure with the City of West Palm Beach, he was a venture capitalist providing capital and organizational consulting to new and expanding business ventures.
