Michael frequently counsels clients on data privacy issues and the implementation of global data protection laws and regulations, including the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), among others. He has experience drafting privacy notice and policies, disclaimers, terms of use, as well as internal procedures and practices to comply with privacy laws. 

Michael also counsels clients in technology and intellectual property transactions, and has developed a focus on blockchain and distributed ledger technologies, autonomous vehicles, machine learning and other artificial intelligence-related concepts.
