Michael Mather practices extensively in Civil Litigation focusing in the areas of:

He represents clients through all stages of litigation—from initial case assessment through trial and appeal. Michael helps clients with construction, real estate, financial service, and business litigation by navigating shareholder disputes, non-competition agreements, banking and real estate transactions, and other complex transactions. He also represents insurance companies and their agents through coverage disputes as well as negligence and bad faith claims. Michael also understands the current and emerging cybersecurity threats and helps clients develop sound cybersecurity practices and data breach response plans; understand their obligations to data subjects, regulators, and other authorities; and represent them should litigation arise.

Michael is admitted to practice law in Minnesota and Wisconsin, and has litigated matters in both state and federal court. He received his J.D., cum laude, from the University of Wisconsin Law School. While in law school, he interned in the Civil Litigation Unit of the Wisconsin Department of Justice, handling prisoner civil rights matters. He also served on the Law School’s Moot Court Executive Board, and wrote the competition problem for the 2012 Evan A. Evans Constitutional Law Moot Court Competition, hosted by the University of Wisconsin Law School. Michael also served as the Co-Chair of the Wisconsin State High School Mock Trial Program from 2014-2015.
