Robert G. Flanders, Jr.
Partner | Whelan, Corrente, Flanders, Kinder & Siket LLP
Bob Flanders is a former Associate Justice of the Rhode Island Supreme Court, where he served for eight years and authored over 400 opinions before returning to private law practice. A former chairman of RI's Board of Regents for Elementary and Secondary Education, and a former Town Councilman, Flanders served as the state-appointed receiver for the financially troubled city of Central Falls, RI, which he led through a successful Chapter 9 restructuring, eliminating the city’s operating deficit and saving the taxpayers over $30 million.

Flanders’ practice focuses on high-stakes, problem-solving engagements involving municipal restructuring and bankruptcy, advising creditors, shareholder and partnership disputes, the defense of employee and consumer finance class actions, complex litigation, government investigations, and arbitration matters across a broad range of dispute and transactional areas for individuals, businesses, and employers. Flanders is a regular legal commentator on WPRO’s morning news show. During his college years at Brown, he was a student–athlete who was elected to Phi Beta Kappa, captained the baseball team, quarterbacked the football team, and set the Brown, Ivy League, and Yale Bowl records for the longest run from scrimmage. While he was a student at Harvard Law School, Flanders was drafted by the Detroit Tigers and played professional baseball for that organization during the summer months.
