Raised by music teachers, Michael learned two important lessons growing up; never present a piece of music until it is polished and play with an understanding of every musical element. He carries those lessons with him in his legal practice. His clients appreciate his polished and rehearsed approach and his complete understanding of their legal problems.
As a member of the firm’s Corporate Practice Group, Michael assists clients with corporate structuring and formation, securities filings, mergers and acquisitions, and commercial contract negotiations.
Michael understands the practical and business implications of his clients’ issues. Prior to joining SmithAmundsen, Michael worked as an in-house attorney for a financial services company where he learned to balance both legal and business concerns.
When he is not in the office, Michael is passionate about supporting community organizations in Chicago that are centered on the arts.
