With over 30 years of experience, Mike’s legal practice focuses on Northern California business and real estate transactions, land use advocacy, general legal counsel services, corporate law including entity formation, litigation and all forms of dispute resolution. Mike represents clients in the homebuilding industry, land developers, commercial property owners and managers, hospitality companies (hotel and motel) and other clients for which real estate is an important asset. Mike and his partners also serve overseas clients needing legal assistance in California. Brown Gee & Wenger LLP serves a variety of business and individual clients. Mike's partners have employment, litigation, business entity and intellectual property expertise that they use in service to business, technology, real estate, professional service and individual clients. Mike is a devoted counselor and advisor, and is a strong client advocate focused on the deal that can be made, knowing that clients seek solutions and problem solvers rather than getting bogged down in expensive and often impractical litigation that serves neither side’s long term interests. With his expertise in both transactions and litigation, Mike is a problem solver, strategic thinker and strong advocate for his clients and their positions, focused on addressing his client’s goals and partnering with his client to achieve them.
