Daniel Z. GoldmanBienert Katzman Littrell Williams LLP is happy to announce the addition of Daniel Z. Goldman as our newest partner. Dan has significant experience representing individuals and entities in high-stakes cases and investigations involving financial and securities fraud, market manipulation, tax offenses, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act violations, antitrust violations, RICO charges, sanctions violations, allegations of public corruption, and healthcare offenses. Most recently, Dan’s client, a former executive at JPMorgan, was fully acquitted of fraud, market manipulation, racketeering, and spoofing after a highly publicized, five-week trial in federal court in Chicago.

“Dan brings an invaluable depth of knowledge and sophistication to our white collar and investigations practice,” said BKLW Partner John Littrell. “His understanding of the financial industry will be invaluable to our clients under investigation by the SEC and other regulators. We are delighted to have him.”

In his civil practice, Dan has represented both plaintiffs and defendants in multi-million-dollar disputes, and has handled matters involving securities and derivative litigation, contract disputes, business torts, and other commercial matters. Dan represented a former President and COO of a publicly traded REIT in a multi-year securities class action and derivative litigation that settled on highly favorable terms to his client, and was part of a team that represented several institutional investors who collectively lost billions of dollars in investments in the Structured Alpha hedge funds managed by Allianz Global Investors U.S.

“In Dan, we are lucky to find someone who not only contributes to our white collar practice, but also has extensive civil experience on both sides,” said BKLW Partner Whitney Bernstein. "His incredible results speak for themselves, and he is an asset to our civil clients as well.”

Dan achieves outstanding results for his clients, ranging from securing favorable settlements in civil actions, to successfully persuading the government not to file charges or an enforcement action in the first place, to winning for his clients at trial. Dan has experience representing clients from a variety of industries, including accounting, advertising, banking and financial services, cryptocurrency, non-profits, pharmaceutical and healthcare, rating agency services, and real estate.
