In addition to his dispute resolution experience, Dan has considerable expertise advising companies on issues flowing from the use of traditional and specialized insurance policies to hedge against and respond to cybersecurity and consumer data privacy exposures, as well as the related impact of ever-changing state regulation of these areas in the financial services sector.
Dan provides coverage advice to insurers and reinsurers on these issues, as well as regularly interfaces with underwriters to understand their perspective on how market players are protecting themselves and where the future may lead in this complicated field.
