Michael once taught oil and gas law in the only program that teaches it in New York State (University at Buffalo). He later joined the Reed Smith law firm in Pittsburgh, practicing oil and gas law with the firm. Now he’s heading west, to help BakerHostetler with clients interested in expanding into the Marcellus/Utica.
