Michael represents financial institutions, developers, franchisees and small businesses in various corporate and commercial real estate transactions, including financing, lending, leasing, mergers and acquisition.  Michael routinely works on sophisticated matters for some of our firm’s most significant clients.

Michael has been a critical member of our team representing clients in complex transactions from the acquisition, financing and development of hotels at historic properties to the financing of the construction and development of large commercial and mixed-use projects.  He has experience in assisting clients with a range of financing tools, including historic tax credits, new market tax credits, disaster relief bonds, property assessed clean energy (PACE) program, immigrant investor (EB-5) program financing, SBA and other institutional and governmental financing sources.  Michael also represents franchisees and other small businesses in various matters, including organization and incorporation, purchase and sale, leasing and employment related issues.

Michael’s primary objective is to consistently provide the highest quality representation and service to clients.  He believes clients need an attorney who will help them get across the finish line rather than be an obstacle.
