His practice focuses on litigation and counseling under the federal and state securities laws, mergers and acquisitions lawsuits, regulatory investigations and proceedings, securities and corporate governance advice, and business litigation and trade secrets disputes.  



Michael is recognized as a leading trial lawyer who has successfully prosecuted and defended numerous trials to verdict in federal and state courts, and is among the few lawyers in the country who have defended a securities class action trial to verdict.  That shareholder class action trial was recognized as one of the "Top Defense Verdicts" in California by the Daily Journal.

He frequently advises multi-national corporations and executives based in Asia and Europe with respect to business disputes and securities matters. His successful representation of clients in high-profile securities and corporate governance disputes has been widely reported in the media (Los Angeles Times, Wall Street Journal, New York Post, Hollywood Reporter, Variety, New York Times, Fortune), and he was recently recognized as one of the "Most Influential Minority Attorneys in Los Angeles" by the Los Angeles Business Journal.

Michael is:

  • Recommended for his “range of expertise, including the defense of securities class actions and M&A litigation,” “for the fact that he ‘takes a macro approach and looks very far down the line’” with a "'good oratory style'” (Chambers USA, 2015), and "The knowledge level that he has, his attention to detail and his communication skills are outstanding." (Chambers USA, 2017)
  • “Praised” “for his litigation skills” defending securities matters “in both federal and state courts”, noted as “particularly strong in securities class actions with a cross-border element” (The Legal 5002015) and "cares about clients and has innovative ways of solving their problems."  (The Legal 500, 2016)
  • Rated by clients and peers as an “Excellent trial attorney with practical sense” who has “a high level of expertise in the securities litigation field,” “practices with the highest ethical standards,” and “has a remarkable ability both to see the big picture and to sweat the details, and brings excellent judgment to bear on both fronts.” (Martindale-Hubbell)

Michael has moderated and spoken at numerous events on securities law and corporate governance developments. In addition, as a past faculty member of the Stanford Senior Executive Leadership Program, he has taught business executives and leaders on a number of subjects, including cross-border litigation, risk management and securities and accounting liability issues.

Michael serves as a member of the Board of Directors of the Constitutional Rights Foundation.  He is a member of the Executive Committee of the Litigation Section of the Los Angeles County Bar Association, and is Co-Chair of the Programs Committee.  He previously served as the Court Alerts Editor, and as Co-Chair of the Federal Courts and Breakfast at the Bar Committees.  He is also a member of the Board of Advisors of the monthly Securities Reform Act Litigation Reporter publication.  He served as a Lawyer Representative for the Central District of California to the Ninth Circuit Judicial Conference from 2006-2009.
