About Michael

Learn Michael’s areas of practice.


I represent entrepreneurs, startups, and creative professionals in a variety of legal areas, including business law, contracts, venture finance, intellectual property, corporate governance, entertainment law, and commercial litigation.

My firm, Springer Law, began with a simple premise: Starting and running a business shouldn't be any more difficult than it already is. Using Springer Law, startups and entrepreneuers can get the law firm credentials, while also receiving a tailor-made service with a pricing structure that doesn't break the bank or prevent the business from getting off the ground.

Prior to opening my own practice, I clerked in the Southern District of New York for the Honorable William H. Pauley III. I also worked as a litigation associate at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, LLP and Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP, where I handled all aspects of regulatory and complex commercial litigation matters.

I also engage in substantial non-profit work and currently serve on the board of BUILD NYC, a non-profit that empowers teens to create new products and run their own businesses.

Best in class lawyer
Michael has been my lawyer for over two years and has been a pleasure, his care and attention to detail have given me certainty that there is no one else who will be more creative, or who will work harder to provide my company the best legal outcomes than him. Can't recommend highly enough.

Employment Agreement Review
Michael was accessible (email, call, text), attentive and able to fulfill my requests in an incredibly timely manner. It is obvious that he has a passion for his profession and is diligent and fair in the provision of his services. I wouldn't hesitate to refer him to a colleague.

Smart, Detailed, and Responsive
I consulted with Mr. Springer on a business matter, and he was excellent. He was thorough and extremely responsive. Mr. Springer discussed the matter with me at length, identified the relevant legal considerations, and offered me several sound recommendations. I highly recommend him.

The only attorney I’ll work with
Hiring Michael has been one of the best decisions I’ve made for myself and my startup. He understands the challenges of launching new ventures and has been there to help me navigate all the twists and turns. I cannot recommend him enough!

Insightful, thorough and thoughtful for my startup!
Michael has been a real asset to my e-commerce startup, with so little information out their on how small business owners can protect themselves, Michael has saved us from very sticky situations and continues to help us navigate the world of contracts and transactions that are beneficial and protect us from situations that are detrimental, when companies try to take advantage of our startup! You can’t go wrong with hiring with Michael!

We'd be lost without Michael!
As a small business owner, there are legal questions big and small that come up every day - it can be very overwhelming. Michael does a great job of distilling down the issue so that we can understand it and giving us the right advice for our stage of business. We really value his opinion and fully trust him with the legal side of our business. Would highly recommend Michael to any business big or small!
