About
After graduating magna cum laude from the University of Wisconsin Law School, Mike got a full range of law firm experience by working for firms varying in size from national/international BakerHostetler to regional Foley & Lardner to local Godfrey & Kahn. Building on that breadth of experience, he worked as an executive and General Counsel in professional service firms ranging from publicly traded Career Horizons to a privately held technical staffing company SkillMaster to Accretive Solutions, a classic buy-and-build high leverage equity-backed consolidation in the professional consulting business.

"I first worked with Mike more than 15 years ago, I was an executive with the company where he was the general counsel. Since then, Mike has provided ongoing legal services to my privately held company, including most recently valuable M&A expertise and support in helping us negotiate and prepare for a deal with a potential acquirer of our business. His assistance was invaluable to our company, and we would certainly use his services again and recommend him to others."

"I have worked with Mike since 2001. I have known and worked with him in many capacities--he led the acquisition of my business for the buyer, I worked closely with him as our GC post-acquisition, and I have engaged him as my attorney in my own business since 2012. In all of these situations Mike always demonstrated the highest integrity and incredible work ethic. What is most valuable is not just his grasp of the law but his pragmatic approach to helping the business succeed. He provides outstanding counsel while acting as a partner to the business in recommending solutions that are value-added. We often deal with the largest corporations in the country and when we are negotiating contracts I am continuously amazed at how much better prepared Mike is than the attorneys from our clients. After years of working with Mike and watching him successfully manage a variety of challenging situations, I would highly recommend him."
