Dan is a rising star in the white collar investigations and defense bar with a focus on helping companies navigate complex international and domestic cartel investigations.  Dan has been involved in many of the most significant cartel investigations of the last decade, including investigations into the generic pharmaceutical, ocean shipping, financial services, and auto parts industries, among others.

Dan uses the latest advancements in technology to conduct internal investigations and vigorously defend companies under investigation for alleged price-fixing, bid-rigging, and market allocation conspiracies by the U.S. Department of Justice and other government enforcement agencies from around the world.  Dan’s strategy is practical:  leverage his deep experience in the healthcare, financial services, transportation, food and beverage, and industrial sectors to resolve matters quickly, efficiently, and with as little disruption as possible.

Dan is a thought leader in the area of criminal cartel investigations and competition compliance and has published numerous articles on those topics.  He is active in the Cartel and Criminal Practice Committee of American Bar Association’s Antitrust Section, and he is currently on team of federal prosecutors and defense lawyers working to revise and update the ABA Handbook on Antitrust Grand Jury Investigations – the seminal reference guide for criminal antitrust practitioners.

As an experienced antitrust litigator, Dan also represents companies in complex class-action litigation that often results from government investigations and other types of high-stakes competition-related litigation, including allegations of illegal monopolization in violation of the Sherman Act.
