Twice named the New York White Collar and Government Investigations Lawyer of the Year by Chambers USA, Dan has earned a national reputation for “his breadth of expertise and his deft handling of high-profile cases” (Chambers USA).  He is Chambers-ranked for both White Collar and Government Investigations  and as a Trial Lawyer, and has been profiled by leading publications including the New York Times and The American Lawyer.

Dan has represented corporate executives, financial professionals, lawyers, accountants, artists, law firms, and corporations before a wide array of federal and state authorities and courts, as well as in internal investigations. Those matters have involved allegations of securities fraud, mail and wire fraud, insider trading, accounting fraud, market manipulation, criminal antitrust violations, obstruction of justice, perjury, workplace discrimination and harassment, tax fraud, bribery, extortion, environmental law violations, money laundering, off-label marketing, immigration violations, insurance fraud, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, trade secret violations, professional misconduct, asset forfeiture, and other criminal and regulatory issues. In addition, Dan has represented individuals and organizations in complex federal and state civil litigation and claimants in restitution proceedings.

Prior to joining LSW as a partner in 2005, Dan served in the Criminal Division of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York. During his tenure, he received the Justice Department’s Director’s Award for Superior Performance and was named the Federal Prosecutor of the Year in 2003 by the Federal Law Enforcement Foundation.
