Michael is an excellent corporate lawyer, particularly skilled in licensing and contract work. He is a hard worker, a quick study, an efficient draftsman, and a skilled negotiator.
We worked with Michael as outside counsel when he was in house with an emerging technology company, primarily on intellectual property issues and some transactional matters. Michael had a true renaissance-man ability to handle the needs of a growing enterprise. More importantly, he was an exceptional colleague and a pleasure to work with — a professional associate who can be a true friend.
