More About Michael

For the entirety of his career, Michael has limited his practice to a subset of federal securities laws. Because of this intense focus, his clients have come to rely on his solid advice on public and private offerings of securities and ongoing reporting requirements. Through his work with public company clients for nearly two decades, he is able to identify disclosure issues or SEC staff positions that have come up in the context of prior representations, and use that experience to help his clients achieve comparable disclosure and risks to market leaders and peers. Michael's dedication and focus in this area has resulted in a client base that relies on him to steadily achieve their business objectives, many for more than a decade.

His experience includes counseling public companies on registration and reporting obligations under the Securities Act of 1933 and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, including periodic reporting, responses to SEC comment letters, and requests for confidential treatment. Michael has assisted public companies with a broad range of corporate governance compliance activities, including compensation risk assessments, FINRA compliance, drafting and assessing insider trading compliance programs and 10b5-1 trading plans, and compliance with NYSE, NASDAQ, and NYSE listing standards. His transactional experience includes corporate debt and equity financing transactions, including IPOs, shelf takedowns, and registered spinoffs. Michael has also counseled private companies on offerings of securities in private placement transactions under Federal Regulation D involving both debt and equity securities.

Michael's clients benefit from the diversity of his industry experience, including real estate, pharmaceutical, media and entertainment, and health care services, as well as the strong professional and personal relationships he has established at the firm since he joining more than a decade ago.
