Michael L. Burak

Mike's practice focuses on business and commercial litigation, as well as the protection of intellectual property rights, and, in particular, those provided under the federal "Lanham Act." He has extensive experience in matters involving corporate governance and closely owned corporations. He regularly represents defendants in actions brought under Vermont's Consumer Fraud Act, including those involving telemarketing and solicitation for charities.

Upon graduation from Harvard Law School, Mike became a law clerk to the Honorable Sterry R. Waterman, Senior Judge of the United States Second Circuit Court of Appeals. After his clerkship, Mike entered private practice in New York City, first with Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver and Jacobson, and later with Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom. At those firms, Mike's principal activities included complex litigation in securities, mergers and acquisitions, and other business-related areas.

Mike returned to Vermont to serve as General Counsel to the Vermont Public Service Board. Subsequently, he was appointed by Vermont's governor to be the state's first Director for Public Advocacy immediately after that position was created by the Vermont legislature. In such capacities he acquired expertise in all aspects of utility regulation and energy law. Since his return to private practice as a founding partner of Burak Anderson & Melloni PLC, a substantial portion of his practice has been related to commercial litigation and utility matters.
