Several years ago, the trustee’s claims against the lender had been dismissed. Representing the trustee on appeal, Dan persuaded the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit was persuaded to reinstate the trustee’s claims for fraudulent transfer and civil conspiracy.
- Dan has deep experience in the complex area of securities litigation.
