biography

Dan focuses on leading cross-border investment and strategic transactions for clients, particularly in the hospitality, real estate, consumer goods and infrastructure areas. His depth of knowledge is in the corporate, commercial, and finance aspects of these matters, but they often involve a full range of employment, regulatory, disputes, tax and other matters. Clients look to Dan for the full range of legal, negotiations, business and cultural skills needed to succeed in these undertakings.

Dan’s experience in business and finance gives him a valuable perspective on the matters and objectives driving transactions. Having spent half his career living and working abroad, he brings real world perspectives to crossing borders and cultures. Dan’s career has come full circle. He started as an associate in a large law firm, then moved to an in-house counsel role, followed by business executive and corporate finance positions before coming back to the practice of law. His clients appreciate the 360 degree understanding of how large business, finance, governmental and professional organisations work and operate.
