Daniel Corbett* helps clients tackle their toughest litigation and compliance problems in a wide range of areas, including wage and hour law, trade secrets and unfair competition, discrimination and harassment, and whistleblower matters.
Before joining the Firm, Dan spent most of his career in the employment group of an Am Law 100 firm where he focused primarily on wage and hour and trade secrets law.
