Michael Lowry has an active litigation and defense practice, with clients among the country’s largest and most recognizable brands in several industries, such as retail, restaurant and hospitality, commercial transportation, manufacturing and more. As a member of the firm’s emergency response team, when transportation clients face a catastrophic event, Michael and other members of Wilson Elser’s 24/7 go-team arrive on the scene to help gather and preserve information that may be critical to the client’s defense, as well as liaison at the scene with investigating authorities.

Michael’s practice is solution-oriented law, squarely on the side of the client. From preparing arduously for trial to coordinating resolution strategies for alternate dispute resolution options, including arbitration and mediation, when appropriate, the goal is to find a solution to the dispute. This focus is helpful in a wide variety of complex corporate, commercial and general litigation cases Michael handles on behalf of transportation companies, retailers, product manufacturers and others. He also represents these clients in employment disputes, premises liability, contractual disputes, and regulatory and other matters.

Michael is committed to sharing his knowledge with clients through publications on developments in the industry, presentations on issues affecting their interests, and articles and issue briefs on matters as they arise. He makes every effort to keep clients informed and empowered with up-to-date briefings and complimentary educational seminars customized to their needs. Mike independently authors “Compelling Discovery,” a blog that actively discusses appropriate civil discovery and seeks to contain rapidly rising discovery costs. Nearly every year since 2013, the ABA Journal has selected his blog as one of the top 100 legal blogs in the country. Mike’s numerous publications in various trade journals have explored best practices for favorable resolution of client matters. He has presented at numerous conferences across the country, including the Claims and Litigation Management Alliance’s Annual Conference and RIMS.
