Michael began his legal career in Nashville at the law firm of Harwell Howard Hyne Gabbert & Manner, P.C. (aka h3gm), where he served as an associate in its corporate practice group for seven years. When h3gm dissolved in early 2016, Michael found himself in need of a new home, preferably one that would permit him to continue practicing in the efficient, client-centric way he had emphasized while at h3gm. Upon meeting Kevin, Allison, and Saul with Klein Bussell, he knew he had found that new home, and joined the firm as a member in March 2016.
Michael’s law practice encompasses a wide range of corporate subject matter, including assisting clients with structuring corporate transactions and joint ventures, negotiating private equity investments (whether on behalf of investors or founders), negotiating complex commercial contracts, and structuring and negotiating secured transactions. Michael particularly enjoys the opportunity to engage with clients on a long-term basis and learn their business in depth. Michael has found that having such knowledge ultimately leads to greater efficiency and vastly better legal work product, both of which his clients seem to appreciate.
