Mike Slipsky, is a corporate lawyer whose practice is focused on mergers and acquisitions, corporate finance, and privacy and cybersecurity law. He has practiced with Poyner Spruill LLP since moving to Raleigh in 2005. Prior to that, he practiced with a large law firm in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Mike holds a bachelor’s degree in Economics from the University of Utah and received his law degree from the University of North Carolina School of Law. He spent the majority of his youth as an Air Force brat, with stints in Georgia, California, Alabama, the United Kingdom, North Carolina and Utah. As such, he became familiar with a variety of approaches to education and believes that Casa’s methods closely resemble his experience in British primary school, which was by far the most rewarding. He and his wife Sarah have three children, all of whom are currently enrolled at Casa. Mike is an avid fan of Utah football, Carolina basketball and Liverpool FC soccer–he welcomes any and all conversation regarding these topics, even if it involves friendly trash-talking.
