Rob Feder brings a diverse background in real estate and land conservation to his real estate transaction practice.
Rob received his B.A. from Amherst College in 1976, and his J.D. and M.B.A. degrees from The University of Chicago Law School and Graduate School of Business in 1982. He practiced real estate law with the New York firm of Weil, Gotshal & Manges, then spent several years completing land conservation transactions for national non-profit organizations.
Rob directed the New York City open space program of the Trust for Public Land, where his work included the protection of community gardens throughout the City, the creation of wetlands preserves and public trail corridors, and the strengthening of neighborhood organizations creating and managing community open spaces.
Rob moved with his family to Boulder, Colorado in 1989 to manage the Colorado land transactions of The Nature Conservancy. While with TNC he worked with many landowners and other private and public partners to create and expand nature preserves, parks and other public lands, and to help protect private properties, with outstanding habitat and biodiversity values. Public agency participants in his projects included the U.S. Bureau of Land Management and U.S. Forest Service, the Colorado State Land Board, and the Colorado Department of Transportation.
Rob has been engaged in the private practice of law in Colorado since 1994, completing a wide range of commercial real estate transactions and continuing an emphasis on land conservation and open space projects on behalf of private landowners. In addition to helping structure and complete conservation easement conveyances (both charitable gifts and sales), Rob has helped private clients successfully sell a variety of important open space lands and property interests to federal, state, county and municipal government agencies.
Rob is a member of the Colorado, Minnesota and New York Bars.
