Robert S. Pirie is an American lawyer.

Pirie graduated from Harvard College and Harvard Law School. As an undergraduate he was attracted to bibliographical work in Elizabethan authors and began to collect actively while on service with the United States Army in the late 1950s.

During the 1960s and early 1970s Pirie was associated with law firms in Boston. His work for the Harold Hughes election campaign during this time landed him on the master list of Nixon political opponents.

He later practiced in New York City and then served in turn as Co-Chairman and CEO of Rothschild, North America, Senior Managing Director of Bear Stearns & Co., and Vice-Chairman of Investment Banking at SG Cowen Securities Corporation.
