It was during Mike’s college football career where he learned the true value of teamwork and how it impacts success rates. He brings those same merits into each client transaction where he works with individuals and organizations to ensure their needs are met through creative solutions and collaboration.

As a member of the firm’s Real Estate, Zoning and Public Finance Service Group, Mike regularly counsels clients in all aspects of commercial real estate transactions, including providing advice on entity selection and formation, drafting purchase and sale agreements, offers to purchase, performing due diligence, and negotiating and drafting agreements with municipalities and other stakeholders. He has extensive experience counseling clients on land use and zoning matters, such as drafting easements and restrictive covenants, and providing advice regarding project requirements under local zoning laws. Mike also represents landlords and tenants in the drafting and negotiation of retail, health care, industrial, and office lease agreements.

In addition to his commercial real estate work, Mike advises clients on corporate matters such as business-to-business contract review and negotiation, business-to-consumer contract drafting and corporate governance issues. He also represents clients in M&A transactions, negotiating and drafting stock purchase and asset purchase agreements and performing due diligence research.
