Prior to law school, Mr. Backing worked in manufacturing, giving him a firsthand perspective into some of the issues blue collar workers face. During law school, Mr. Backing interned at the Ingham County Probate Court. He also worked as a student clinician at Michigan State University’s Intellectual Property and Entrepreneurial Law Clinic, where he worked with small business owners regarding their intellectual property management and other legal needs.
