He represents corporations and individuals in criminal proceedings, enforcement actions and internal investigations. Daniel brings the breadth of his white collar defense experience to his matters and applies his vantage point to representing financial service providers and fintech companies that have come under increased scrutiny by state and federal regulators.

Daniel’s individual client representations have included the former CEO of a publicly traded pharmaceutical company as a key witness in an insider-trading trial, a former editor-in-chief of a national media company in both federal and state criminal proceedings and a hedge fund executive in a wide ranging criminal investigation by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York.
