Dan Shapiro is a partner at Ruskin Moscou Faltischek, P.C. and a member of firm’s Commercial Litigation Department.

Dan Shapiro focuses his practice on complex commercial litigation, with specific attention to partnership-related business disputes. The matters he handles regularly involve disputes between feuding business partners, shareholders, limited liability members and other contracting parties. He has handled several commercial cases from inception up through and including trial, as well as on appeal. Dan also advises corporate clients on employment matters, financial matters and issues of corporate governance.

There, he has successfully defended local laws facing constitutional challenge and has helped dispose of several cases brought against municipal employees and public officers.

Dan prides himself on finding creative ways to resolve disputes for his clients before litigation proves inevitable but when a lawsuit cannot be avoided, that creativity translates into effective advocacy both inside and outside the courtroom.
