For lawyers, by a lawyer
Founder & CEO
Hi, I'm Michael, and, before founding Praktio, I was the founding director of the Transactional Lab & Clinic at the University of Michigan Law School. In the clinic, I supervised students working on transactional matters for large, mature organizations around the world (e.g., Pepsi, Aon, NPR) and small, local organizations around the Law School.
In addition to practicing transactional law in a clinical setting, I practiced at Sidley Austin, with a focus on technology transactions and mergers and acquisitions. I'm also the co-author of two books on contracts from a transactional perspective: Contracts and Commercial Transactions and Contracts: A Transactional Approach, both published by Aspen. Before all that, I earned a J.D. from Yale Law School.
From working at a large firm and supervising students in legal clinics, I appreciate the importance of understanding the nuances of legal documents and the practical skills of reviewing, drafting, and negotiating them. That's why I created Praktio.
