Michael J. Macaluso is the Managing Partner of the firm. He has a long track record for successfully managing large, innovative, and complex transactions, investments, and projects for some of the world's leading institutions and middle-market companies, including GMAC, Cargill, Wells Fargo, and HSBC. Alternating as a partner with large law firms and as a member of law departments of large corporates, funds, and growth companies, he developed significant experience bridging the management of complex legal engagements as outside counsel and the complexities and needs of the internal legal function consistently delivering legal and strategic solutions to his clients in even the most challenging situations.

As a practice leader and partner with global law firms such as DLA Piper, Morgan Lewis, and Faegre Drinker, where he either chaired or co-chaired these firms' structured finance groups, Mr. Macaluso pioneered the business model at the heart of the firm morphing his practice into an increasingly business advisory platform that served the growing and ever more sophisticated demands of global business. He has successfully completed many billions of dollars in cross-border, in country, transactions, investments, and ventures in many parts of the world, including in the U.S., Greater China, Asia-Pacific generally, parts of the Middle East, and Europe.

For over a decade, Mr. Macaluso was the senior member responsible for legal of the global treasury team of a $120 billion company with activities across three continents. During the financial crisis, he led teams restructuring or working out over $150 billion of liquidity for some of the world's leading institutions.

Mr. Macaluso regularly writes regarding capital markets. Those articles can be found at "The Macaluso Report." He also taught capital markets as an adjunct professor at the University of Minnesota Law School for over a decade. Mr. Macaluso received his JD and MBA from the University of Chicago and his BA from Lehigh University.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
