Dan’s estate planning practice focuses on helping families enhance their lives today and secure their futures tomorrow. He guides his clients through the often confusing maze of financial and legal decisions to create plans that ensure the well-being of their families and the accomplishment of cherished family goals. His practice focuses on family protection, wealth preservation, and values-based planning, as well as planning strategies for unmarried couples and divorced individuals.

Prior to setting up his firm, Dan worked at leading international law firms including Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer for over ten years, mostly in London. During that time he provided legal counsel to renowned clients which included major investment banks and Fortune 500 companies. Dan advised on groundbreaking cryptocurrency transactions and his work in this area was published in a major international publication, International Financial Law Review, in 2018. He has chosen to transition away from bank regulatory work and concentrate on the Trusts and Estates area because he is passionate about helping families create happy and secure futures. Dan obtained his law degree from The University of Birmingham in the UK and his master of laws degree (LLM) from Duke Law School.

On a personal note, Dan was born and raised in London and moved to the States in 2017. He and his American wife have two young children: three year old Aiden and one year old Emma. In his free time, Dan enjoys playing tennis, attending political events, binge watching Netflix, teaching Aiden how to play soccer and wondering whether his kids will speak with a British or American accent.
