Attorney Biographies

Part of our Firm's strength comes from our focus on the overall situation. Our actions are based on what the client wants to achieve. A case or negotiation can take on a life of its own; we keep our focus on the client's goal. In litigation, that may require aggressive, unrelenting pressure, or it may mean in appropriate cases the use of an Alternative Dispute Resolution mechanism or other avenue of negotiation instead of the traditional lawsuit approach. In transactional work, it means being a deal maker and not a deal breaker.

Ed Dauber is a partner in the Firm’s Litigation Department and Alternative Dispute Resolution Department, with a major focus on white collar criminal matters.

Mr. Dauber was in charge of the State’s more than four hundred Deputy Attorneys General, representing all state agencies including the Departments of Insurance, Banking and Environmental Protection, and all professional boards.

Mr. Dauber served as Acting Attorney General for Insurance Matters, was chairman of the State’s Interdepartmental Health Fraud Task Force and was honored for his initiatives in the use of Alternative Dispute Resolution by receiving the prestigious Center for Public Resources national award in 1992.
