From artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to autonomous vehicles, virtual reality, and cryptocurrency, the rapid evolution of technology shows no sign of slowing down. Companies in the digital technology sector are among the world’s most highly valued companies, with good reason. And businesses in every sector now use digital technology in all kinds of ways, from basic email to sophisticated data analytics.
Fresh water is becoming a scarce resource in the United States and across the globe as demand continues to rise due to population and business growth. This emergent scarcity means businesses will face more consequences of the complex regulatory and legal frameworks governing water use and water quality.
Michael Best’s Water team understands those issues. We guide clients through the heavily regulated, politically sensitive environment surrounding the management of, investment in, and development of water resources.
All businesses have to comply with government regulations—some more so than others. Our Regulatory practice is designed to serve clients in heavily regulated industries, such as manufacturing and utility services, as well as across various industries in regulated areas that impact business as a whole, such as environmental regulation.

College athletes who generate millions of dollars of profit for their schools now meet the definition of employees under federal labor law, according to a recent memo by the National Labor Relations Board’s General Counsel. The memo moved college athletes one step closer to gaining the rights afforded private sector workers. It greatly expands the ability of student athletes to collectively advocate for improved working conditions and create unions just like other private sector employees. More broadly, the memo signals the NLRB’s expansive view of protected concerted activity, joint employer liability, and independent violations for misclassifying workers, which impacts not just private colleges and universities, but all employers. We will discuss the memo and its potential consequences for higher education institutions related to athletes and other employees.
We will apply for CLE credit in CO, IL, NC, TX, UT, VA, and WI (if applicable).
