Profile

As one of Wendel Rosen’s senior litigators, Dan handles a wide array of complex business litigation, including unfair competition, product liability, director and officer liability, and real estate disputes. He represents small and large companies, high net worth individuals, manufacturing concerns, distributors, real estate companies and public entities. He is equally comfortable in the courtroom representing his clients’ interests or in the boardroom providing advice designed to avoid litigation.  The ability to find creative resolutions of complex disputes is often the best solution for clients.

Dan litigates in varied substantive areas.  In the last ten years he has successfully represented bankruptcy trustees in actions against debtors, officers, directors and other professionals for misconduct as well as manufacturing companies against entities who have damaged them through unfair competition, patent infringement, and trade secret theft. He is often called upon to represent shareholders, officers and directors of closely held agricultural, real estate, manufacturing and technology companies which have internal conflicts.  He focuses on problem solving, rather than problem creation.  He routinely represents trustees, fiduciaries and beneficiaries of substantial estates and trusts in all types of fiduciary disputes.  He continues to represent public and private entities in contract disputes over real estate, land use, construction, general commercial operations and contracts of insurance.  He is also frequently called upon to represent companies that manufacture regulated products for sale to consumers, regarding advertising and regulatory compliance with California and federal law. He also represents companies which sell products to consumers, regarding Proposition 65 compliance matters and defense claims.
