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 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.
