Firm Overview

Businesses need more from a law firm than skilled advice and representation alone — they need a long-term strategic partner like Michael Best.

We’ve earned many loyal clients by understanding each one’s unique goals, opportunities, and challenges, and by delivering results, year after year. Our focus is on your entire organization, not just on the legal matters we’re involved in.

Michael Best is a full-service firm with more than 220 lawyers who provide our clients with the exceptional legal service and business acumen that have defined our firm for generations. Our practice is broadly organized into the following areas, each with its own sub-practices:

• Banking & Financial Services
• Corporate & Transactional
• Energy Law
• Environmental & Natural Resources
• Government Relations & Public Policy
• Intellectual Property
• Labor & Employment Relations
• Litigation
• Real Estate
• Tax

We serve regional, national, and international corporations, as well as municipalities, trade associations, nonprofits, family trusts, and individuals. Our clients range in size from small start-up ventures to global Fortune 500 companies, in many different industries. Michael Best has a long history of serving clients in the consumer and industrial products sectors, for example, and as those sectors evolve, our practice has grown to encompass a diverse range of technology and software clients.

Additionally, we have deep experience in a number of industries that are subject to unique regulatory schemes or rapidly changing market conditions, such as:

• Agribusiness
• Energy
• Food & Beverage
• Life Sciences
• University / Higher Education

We work in collaborative, cross-practice teams that focus not only on legal and regulatory matters, but also on operational issues, market opportunities, and competitive advantage. We always strive to provide excellent service within a highly competitive cost structure, and clients consistently praise our responsiveness and value.
