(Princeton, New Jersey – November 4, 2021) – FisherBroyles, LLP is pleased to announce Michael Weiner has joined the Firm in Princeton.

Michael joins FisherBroyles’ Corporate Practice from Fox Rothschild LLP, where he was a Partner. For over 40 years, he has represented clients ranging from sole proprietorships to publicly held corporations in many industries – pursuing transactions including M&A, divestitures, joint ventures and commercial arrangements.

With a particular focus on M&A, Michael has represented both buyers and sellers (strategic and financial, including independent sponsors) in many platform and add-on transactions. He has advised various early-stage technology and life science-oriented businesses on capital formation, where he has an extensive background handling private placements and venture capital transactions.

Michael often fills the role of an ‘outside general counsel’ for early-stage and middle market companies, providing advice on business formation, shareholders, partnership, operating agreements, employment agreements and a wide range of commercial agreements, including licensing, supply, and distribution agreements.

He has also participated in a number of transactions in online gaming, particularly internet access agreements between holders of casino licenses and providers of online gaming platforms.

Michael was previously a Partner with Pepper Hamilton LLP and Counsel to Reed Smith LLP. He holds a J.D. from Case Western Reserve University School of Law and an A.B. from Colgate University. In 2002, Michael was selected to the “Top Deal Maker” list by Business News New Jersey.

 

Michael Pierson, Managing Partner, Global Corporate said:

Michael Weiner said:

“I’m delighted to join FisherBroyles. Not only was I drawn to the Firm’s business model, built around talent, technology, and collaboration, but the depth of legal talent and strength of the partnership across a wide range of industries were huge motivations for me. I look forward to becoming part of this unique environment and servicing my clients more efficiently.”
