Whether it’s a shopping center in St. Louis, a movie theater and strip mall in Kansas City, Missouri, an apartment complex in Kansas City, Kansas or a shopping mall in Wichita, Kansas, Rob is the lawyer for having a receiver appointed and all types of properties foreclosed in Kansas or Missouri. 

Regarded by his Kansas City peers as one of the best of the bar, according to The Kansas City Business Journal and SuperLawyers magazine, in Creditor’s Rights and Real Estate, Rob has run some of the more complex receivership appointments and pieces of foreclosure litigation in Kansas and Missouri.  Rob is relied upon by many of the most respected banking institutions in the Kansas City area to protect their loan positions, claims and judgments in and out of state court and through workouts and forbearance periods.  Rob’s financial institution clients look to him to make sense of the often-confusing processes and procedures in all chapters of bankruptcy.

Mr. Maher’s experience with the enforcement end of loans has given him a unique perspective on assisting his bank clients on the front end of documenting loans.  He has had to litigate and defend many of the loan default provisions in state court, so that experience is invaluable in protecting his clients in the writing of the loan documents on the front end.

Rob has extensive experience and expertise assisting clients in the acquisition, financing, development, renting, leasing and liquidation of commercial, retail, industrial and residential real estate.   He has guided clients through the process of selling and acquiring businesses through stock or asset sales as well as buy-outs of individual partners or members from corporate entities.

Rob’s direct number is 816-960-7393 and his email is rmaher@mcdowellrice.com.  He is committed to promptly returning all correspondence from clients and prospective clients.  If you need assistance, contact him and he will promptly respond to you.
