About me

My practice is concentrated on corporate and securities law. Since 1984, I have represented corporate clients and individuals in a variety of business transactions, including public and private financings, mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures, both domestically and internationally.



I currently serve as outside general counsel to select businesses in several different industries. I also work with companies, founders and investors on specific projects such as startup structuring, debt and equity financings, and sales of businesses.

  • Jonathan I. Feil

    Mike worked with me as co-counsel in a unique kind of securities offering in 2010 for a long-time client. He handled the more sophisticated securities and business law questions, while I assembled the final offering packet. It was a good team approach, for our firm as corporate counsel but less experienced in securities placements, to work together as co-counsel. Mike is knowledgeable, easy to work with, and dedicated to producing a quality product at a fair fee.
