ROBERT ANDERST JOINS RISCH PISCA
Risch Pisca Law and Policy is pleased to announce that Robert Anderst has joined the firm as a government affairs liaison and consultant to the firm’s robust real estate law practice.
Mr. Anderst served four terms in the Idaho House of Representatives where he focused in the areas of tax policy, real estate, economic development and infrastructure. During his service in the House he served as Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee; Vice Chairman of the Environment, Energy and Technology Committee; and as a member of the Revenue and Taxation; Business; and Commerce and Human Resources Committees. Mr. Anderst also served many years on Idaho Power Company’s Integrated Resource Planning Committee, PNWER (Pacific Northwest Economic Region) and the Idaho Permanent Building Fund Advisory Council. As a legislator, Mr. Anderst developed a reputation as being a legislator that could carry particularly complex bills to passage and get “big things” done. Some accomplishments include helping expand I-84 through the Treasure Valley, assisting in the state’s acquisition of the Hewlett Packard campus and assisting in the drafting and navigation of complex corporate conformity tax legislation. Mr. Anderst takes pride in the strong and meaningful relationships he has built with members of the House, Senate, Governor’s office and the state’s executive agencies.
In addition to his legislative leadership, Mr. Anderst has nearly three decades of real estate experience in multiple disciplines. He started as a residential agent upon graduation from Idaho State University. In 1994 Mr. Anderst moved to Boise and began a career in the title and escrow industry. He led teams in various roles including Vice President for two different companies. Mr. Anderst most recently served as a National Accounts Manager for a global real estate service company.
Mr. Anderst also spent ten years as a commercial real estate broker in the Treasure Valley. He represented a variety of corporate and institutional clients through many complex transactions. Mr. Anderst also has experience as a developer of residential condominium units in Boise.
“We’ve worked with and have been friends with Robert for nearly 20 years,” said Jeremy Pisca, a partner in the firm. “He has a solid reputation as a person of integrity who can work with people on both sides of the aisle and achieve meaningful results for Idaho.”
“Our firm has a very diverse residential and commercial real estate law practice, including serving as general counsel to the Idaho REALTORS®. Robert’s real estate background will be invaluable to the service we offer our clients,” said Jason Risch, the other founding partner in the firm.
“It seems like a very natural fit,” said Anderst. “This is a perfect opportunity to combine my love of policy and real estate.”
