Overview of Experience and Nature of Practice:

Dan’s practice covers a broad spectrum. He helps clients navigate the minefield that is the health care industry, dealing with complex regulatory issues, structural and compliance concerns, HIPAA issues, government investigations, and when all else fails, litigation. Dan also helps clients navigate contracting issues, with a particular focus on data security and privacy concerns. Dan also works in trademarks, intellectual property transactions, and related litigation for clients in all types of businesses who are looking to proactively protect their interests or who have to defend them.
