During his career, Michael has been involved in a wide variety of cases covering numerous industries. His has worked on bilateral investment treaty (BIT) claims, and claims involving the energy sector, such as pricing disputes.

Prior to moving to Singapore, Michael worked in Canada; the UK; across the English-speaking Caribbean, Mediterranean and English channels; and Central and Eastern Europe.
