A veteran of in-house legal practice, Mike now serves as Lex Valorem's resident attorney in its Cortex office. Mike has known Patti for years and is enjoying helping Lex Valorem's practice grow. Please try not to confuse him with the young, hip people with whom he works.
Mike takes seriously the relationship side of practicing law – understanding the client as a person and also understanding their business. His common sense approach probably goes way back to his farm background.
If you're in St. Louis, you may have seen Mike at the Tower Grove Farmers Market on Saturday mornings, pushing the world's greatest black bean products from del Carmen (his wife's Cuban food startup). Or riding his road bike with friends in an effort to age gracefully. A preventive and prospective effort though, not denial.
Mike's also available for secondments into your company or legal department while he's actively looking for a senior in-house position with the right company.
Experience – Years in the legal departments of major financial, energy and agribusiness companies throughout the Midwest, working with many wonderful, talented business clients and law firms globally of all sizes.
