Becker Strengthens Corporate Practice with Addition of Michael J. Burwick in New York

December 4, 2023 – New York, NY – Becker, a leading multi-practice commercial law firm with attorneys, lobbyists, and other professionals throughout the United States, proudly welcomes Michael J. Burwick as a Shareholder in the Corporate Practice.

With nearly 30 years of expertise in corporate, tax and securities law, Mr. Burwick specializes in tax deferral, mitigation, and minimization. He joins a roster of more than 300 lawyers and staff professionals across Becker’s 18 offices and will be based in Becker’s New York office.

Prior to joining Becker, Burwick held partner positions at two AM Law 200 firms. Burwick has developed and implemented innovative tax strategies drawn from underutilized sections of the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) to assist businesses of varying sizes, as well as high-net-worth individuals, families, and trusts, to navigate the timing and payment of both capital gains and ordinary income taxes. Michael’s expertise consistently results in substantial savings for his clients.

Gary C. Rosen, Becker’s Managing Shareholder and CEO, said, “Michael’s arrival aligns seamlessly with our commitment to delivering unparalleled legal services and strategic counsel to our clients, ensuring continued success in navigating complex tax landscapes. We look forward to his contributions to our firm and the clients we proudly serve.”

Victor J. DiGioia, Becker’s New York Regional Managing Shareholder, added, “Michael’s adeptness in developing innovative tax strategies will not only benefit our clients but also strengthens our corporate practice.”

Expressing his enthusiasm, Burwick shared, “I’m pleased to bring my nearly 30 years of legal experience to Becker, a firm I’ve admired since being admitted to the Florida Bar in 1995. I am particularly eager to integrate my tax, corporate and securities law practice with the accomplished and impressive cadre of Becker attorneys.”

Becker’s corporate practice group advises clients locally and internationally on a broad spectrum of corporate finance matters. This includes mergers and acquisitions, securities offerings, corporate governance issues, regulatory proceedings, and comprehensive support through all stages of civil litigation, from initial negotiations to trial, judgment, and appeal.
