Danielle specializes in dispute resolution, representing clients in the health care and financial services industries in federal and state court litigation, domestic and international arbitration and government investigations. Danielle is admitted to practice in the state of Massachusetts and is supervised by members of the firm who are admitted to practice in New York.
I guide clients through the dispute resolution process from start to finish, with a goal of obtaining the most satisfactory results in an economic and efficient manner. My experience in the private sector as an engineer and a marketing consultant provide me with real-world insight into client needs and strategic thinking.
I work on teams that regularly obtain early dismissal for financial services clients in cases involving up to $100MM. I also work with clients in the services and manufacturing industries to position them effectively to settle disputes prior to trial. In addition, I help health care clients navigate through government investigations, working to minimize both the scope of the investigation and the disruption to their business.
I see predictive coding transforming electronic discovery; this disruptive technology provides sophisticated tools to clients while greatly diminishing their discovery costs.
Danielle is the author, with Professor Michael Avery of Suffolk University Law School, of The Federalist Society: How Conservatives Took The Law Back From Liberals (Vanderbilt University Press, 2013). See also “The Federalist Society and Judicial Selection” at www.acslaw.org.
