About
I am an experienced business attorney, with a passion for working with early stage and high growth companies.

Most recently I was general counsel of Grovo, a B2B SaaS platform based in New York City. I was a member of the company’s management team and first legal hire, responsible for all legal matters, including commercial contracts, employment and compensation issues, financing and real estate issues, and advising on product development.

"Michael couldn’t have been more capable and willing to work with us. As a startup, good legal advice is hard to come by, and Michael has the knowledge and capability to not only advise us on legal issues, but to help us see the larger picture from an entire business perspective. Michael helped us to see our legal options, but also develop our negotiation strategies to keep us sound asleep at night. We couldn’t recommend Michael more highly."

"Michael helped us draft and negotiate our first convertible note, and I could not have been happier with the process. In addition to a quick turn around and high level of professionalism, Michael took the time to explain the nuances of the note and translate his legal execution with the business logic that we wanted reflected in our legal documents."
