His work includes overseeing the daily operations of two business units, encompassing more than 125 attorneys. He initiates projects by building the best teams for a given matter, which means providing the right level of industry experience to meet client objectives from Day One.

As managing director of both the Energy & Natural Resources and Food Systems units, Mike plays a central role in keeping the firm on a growth trajectory that meets clients’ expanding needs. He leads lateral recruiting efforts that have allowed us to grow practice teams within both industries, as well as bring in exactly the talent we know clients will need.

Mike spends most of his personal time with his family and also enjoys cycling, golfing and skiing.

Mike and his wife have a large family. He spends most of his hours outside the office helping support his five kids in their interests in athletics and the arts. Three of his children participate in competitive sports: a swimmer who is currently in college; a field hockey player who recently graduated from college, where she played all four years; and a high school swimmer.

When he finds free time, Mike enjoys golf and cycling as recreation, though he has competed in a few fundraising events. As a mountain lover, he relishes the family’s skiing vacations.
