Fellowship

The World Commerce & Contracting Fellow status is the highest accolade we offer our members.

It’s an opportunity for you to be recognized by your industry and peers for your outstanding experience, professionalism, and dedication.

We do not award the Fellow status lightly. It recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions to the development of Commercial and Contract Management and in many cases personal support of the association and its vision and mission in driving improvement in the quality and integrity of trading relationships.

As CEO of UnitedLex, Dan has a singular focus of empowering clients to achieve their own unique “art of the possible” in the field of law. As a former general counsel and CFO of public and private equity backed companies, Dan saw the power of Digital and delivering holistic legal services through a revolutionary platform of technology, captive law firm, and consulting company delivery and inspired levels of training and professional development. Central to Dan’s vision is UnitedLex’s investment with clients to alleviate traditional budget concerns and guarantee performance and economic targets. This vision has fueled UnitedLex’s growth from a handful of employees in 2007 to a highly skilled international workforce of over 3,200 lawyers, engineers, consultants, and technologists today.

Before founding UnitedLex, Dan served as a managing director of Capgemini in the areas of supply chain and finance. Dan arrived at Capgemini when it acquired Nasdaq-listed company Kanbay and its subsidiary Adjoined Consulting, where he was CFO and general counsel. Adjoined Consulting was a Columbia Capital-backed enterprise and disruptor in technology consulting and one of the most successful venture companies in the 2000s. Before that, Dan served as the general counsel to SmartDisk Corporation, where he guided the start-up through early-stage structuring and execution of its IPO, one of the top performing IPOs in 1999. During Dan’s tenure, SmartDisk’s market capitalization exceeded $1 billion, and the company held significant market share in the data storage and digital lifestyle market sectors.

Dan previously worked at Ernst & Young, where he advised Fortune 500 corporations on audit and tax matters as a CPA, and Greenberg Traurig, where he led major multinational corporate M&A, IPO, and private capital raise transactions as a member of the corporate and securities department.

Ernst & Young named Dan its “Entrepreneur of the Year” in the Technology and Business Services category for the U.S. Midwest Region. This honor symbolizes Dan’s demonstrated excellence and extraordinary success in innovation, performance, and personal commitment to UnitedLex’s professionals, clients, and communities.

Dan earned his B.S. in accounting from the University of Florida’s Fisher School of Accounting and his J.D. from Vanderbilt.
