Global Perspective

“My youth, my ability to speak multiple languages, my location. They all worked in my favor,” Michaels recalls. “If NAFTA had not gone through, I would never have developed an interest in international estate planning, which eventually evolved to my representation of financial institutions. I was very lucky. They were looking for someone with international experience, spoke multiple languages, who loved the idea of living overseas.”

His hiring by Baker McKenzie – ranked by The American Lawyer magazine as the top global law firm — started Michaels down a career path that would lead him to be recognized as one of the world’s leading wealth management lawyers. He has been ranked among this elite group by Chambers & Partners, the leading law firm ranking system.
