Dan is a member of the Paris Bar and a graduate of both Université Jean-Moulin-Lyon-III law school (DESS Droit et finance de l’entreprise) and EM Lyon business school.
Dan began his career within a criminal law firm before working as a Clerk to the Judge heading the 15th Chamber of the Paris Court of Appeal (banking and financial litigation). He spent many years ‘in house’ within the Global Litigation department of BNP Paribas and led the “Criminal Proceedings and Regulatory Enforcement” team of the Group prior to joining Allen & Overy, in 2014.
Dan specialises in financial litigation work with a strong focus on complex white-collar crime and regulatory enforcement cases involving banking and financial services institutions (credit institutions, asset managers, investments firms, payment service providers, e-money institutions, etc.), large corporates and their top-level managers. He represents clients before all French civil and criminal courts, and assists them in the context of investigations and proceedings initiated by French and EU regulatory agencies (ACPR, AMF, AFA).
The bulk of Dan’s practice is to deal with issues revolving around financial crime (money laundering and terrorist financing, anti-bribery and corrupt practices, sanctions and embargoes, fraud), market abuses, tax-related offences, unfair commercial practices, and more generally around the professional duties and conduct rules imposed on supervised entities and their top-level managers. He generally has experience of a wide range of banking (corporate and retail) and asset management issues, and represents large institutions in French civil class actions.
Dan also frequently advises clients in their dealings with French criminal and regulatory agencies, and assists them designing and enhancing their systems and controls, policies and procedures.
