During the 2-year period ending August 31, 2018, Dan advised on the tax aspects of over 300 fund formation projects. Almost 100 of those held one or more closings during that period, raising a combined total of over $100 billion in capital commitments.

Dan’s clients include sponsors of private equity funds, credit funds, growth equity funds, venture capital funds and hedge funds located across the U.S., Europe and Asia. He assists with fund formations ranging in size from under $100 million to over $10 billion.
