Daniel started his career working on commercial litigation matters in New York. He left to run an established e-commerce retail business and returned to private practice a year later to focus on trademark disputes and commercial transactions. In the wake of the 2014 MtGox bankruptcy, Daniel went to Tokyo where he lived for a year representing the interests of creditors. Daniel was a co-founder of BitOcean, which sought to purchase MtGox out of bankruptcy, and WizSec , a blockchain analysis and security company which has led the investigation into the disappearance of MtGox's bitcoins. He continues to represent clients in the Bitcoin world and e-commerce entreprenuers. He spends most of his time in Taiwan and Hong Kong.
