Whether it's a government investigation, a complex lawsuit, or an internal whistleblower complaint, Dan works as a problem solver, advisor, and advocate to help clients tackle their most challenging and sensitive business threats.
His experience is both versatile and deep: he represents clients in a wide range of investigations and commercial disputes, with a particular focus on the life sciences, healthcare, and insurance industry sectors. He conducts internal investigations; defends clients in federal, state and local criminal and civil investigations; and litigates complex cases in federal and state courts, including class actions and multidistrict litigation.
