Family has a strong draw.
Craig Stoehr had practiced law around the world, from Qatar and London, before he decided to return to his home state of Wisconsin earlier this year. The corporate and transactional attorney was looking to be closer to his family and found Michael Best & Friedrich was looking to grow its presence in his specialty areas.
“I was working as a general counsel in London and wanted to get back to private practice,” Stoehr said of the transatlantic move. “It has been a great fit. There are a lot more cross border transactions happening in business.”
Stoehr came to Michael Best with more than 25 years of legal experience in more than 50 countries across the globe, working both for law firms and companies. He most recently served as general counsel and head of mergers and acquisitions at the Thomas Cook Group, the world’s oldest travel company.
At Michael Best, Stoehr focuses on securities, mergers and acquisitions, private equity, venture capital and investment fund matters. In addition to the office in Milwaukee, he also sees clients in the firm’s Chicago and Washington, D.C., offices.
