Michael Chesal

Peretz Chesal Herrmann

Michael Chesal

Mr. Michael Chesal practices intellectual property law because he finds it both challenging and rewarding. He particularly enjoys playing the role of problem solver, getting a favorable result by accurately assessing risks and implementing strategies that he helped devise based on that assessment.

Early on in his education, Michael focused his studies on business administration and computer and information sciences. This early interest in business and technology, coupled with the onset of an expanding need for businesses to be proactive in protecting their proprietary rights, led Michael to pursue a legal career focused primarily on working with businesses and their intellectual property.

Counseling, troubleshooting, and resolving matters regarding protection, registration and infringement of trademarks, copyrights, patents, trade secrets, domain names, and computer software are just some of the ways Michael helps his clients.

Well respected among his peers, Michael mediates Intellectual Property cases as a way to bring resolution to issues that aren’t best suited for litigation, and his expertise in the field makes him the ideal mediator.

Additionally, Michael is Chairman of Aish South Florida and has been affiliated with Aish since 1989. He taught a weekly course on Jewish Ethics at Aish for over five years and continues to give regular classes there on a variety of subjects.
