About Dan

Protecting your business requires experience, knowledge of the law, and the ability to identify important issues with ease.  Based on decades of experience, Dan has developed an ability to isolate critical concerns from complexity.

Dan has a background in chemistry and chemical engineering and has experience with chemical and mechanical technologies including chemical processing, semiconductor processing, pharmaceuticals and biotech, medical devices, agrochemistry, and related regulatory issues.  Specific areas of experience include patents, licensing, joint development agreements, patent infringement reviews and opinions, litigation, and trademarks.

An area of focus is IP licensing, based in part on in-house experience at 3M where Dan advised clients on licensing and joint development agreements.  More recently, Dan taught a course in IP Licensing at the William Mitchell College of Law in St. Paul, MN, as an adjunct professor, creating an original curriculum of IP licensing caselaw.

Other areas of experience include commercial contracts and EPA registrations and related agreements.
