Daniel has represented clients across a wide variety of industries in all aspects of business and commercial litigation, including the prosecution and defense of complex breach of contract, fraud, unfair business competition, trade secret and business tort claims.

In connection with Daniel’s intellectual property practice, he has also litigated many complex trademark, copyright and misappropriation of trade secret matters.
Representative matters range from trademark disputes involving artificial log products to a lighted promotional product, copyright disputes involving literary works for a widely disseminated and well-known periodical to software source code infringement to a work of performing art, and misappropriation of trade secret matters involving audio consumer products to breaches of licensing agreements.
