Remembering Mike May

Mike May passed away peacefully in the early morning of October 3, 2022. We at Boardman Clark will always remember Mike for his quick wit, sharp mind, unfailing dedication to his ethical responsibilities, and his love of the law.

Mike started with Boardman, Suhr, Curry & Field (Boardman Clark’s predecessor) in 1979 as an Associate and became a Partner and then Chair of the Executive Committee, serving many municipal and non-governmental clients, including Municipal Electric Utilities of Wisconsin, for whom he was General Counsel for many years. In 2004, he left Boardman to take a 15-year position with the City of Madison as City Attorney – the second-longest serving City Attorney in Madison history. He returned to Boardman Clark in 2020 as Senior Counsel to practice primarily in the areas of public sector litigation and municipal law.

An avid UW Badger football fan, gardener, reader and writer, Mike will be missed by his colleagues, clients, and our wider community. Our deepest sympathies are with his family, including his wife, Briony, his three children and two grandchildren.

A special issue of the Municipal Law Newsletter will be dedicated to our dear friend and colleague in the near future.
