Michael has over 25 years of experience in the securities industry. He started his career as a lawyer at Aird & Berlis LLP and became a partner four-years after joining the firm. His legal career focused on the areas of Corporate Finance and domestic and international Mergers and Acquisitions.

He has developed a detailed understanding of the financial markets, the interaction between the buy-side and the sell-side, securities analysis and securities valuation.
