About Michael

Learn Michael’s areas of practice.

I am a California and New York attorney with decades of experience in all facets of corporate and commercial legal work.

I specialize in startups and founders; mergers and acquisitions; partnerships, joint ventures, and strategic alliances; private investment funds; co-branded payment products; asset protection planning; entity selection, formation, organization, governance, and financing; equity incentive plan creation, implementation, and administration; securities laws compliance; real estate acquisition and leasing; intellectual property protection and licensing; and commercial contracting of all types, including manufacturing, supply, distribution, and sales representative agreements.

I have worked over the years for some of the world’s biggest and most recognizable companies, including Apple, Ford, Citibank, Morgan Stanley, W Hotels, and NBCUniversal; for individuals with nothing more than a dream, including a school teacher next door neighbor with a promising app idea; and for other entities and individuals covering the entire spectrum in terms of size, wealth, and sophistication between.

I have negotiated deals on five continents in industries ranging from music to gold mining, hospitality to water desalination, esports to banking, and many more.

I have acted as outside general counsel to numerous startups.

If you are creating, building, buying, or selling a business, wish to protect or license your company's intellectual property, or need a general counsel to provide ongoing business law advice, I can provide the sophisticated, experienced legal services you require to achieve those ends.

Please contact me any time to discuss how best to structure a relationship (including fees) that satisfies your ongoing legal counsel requirements and otherwise works to our mutual benefit.
