Daniel "Dan” Kane is a registered patent attorney and corporate counsel with a passion for entrepreneurship — on main street or on a mainframe. For nearly a decade, he has advocated for startups and small businesses in New York State and across the country, from fighting burdensome regulations to protecting the innovative foundations of companies. With this law firm, he plans to solve the most persistent problem plaguing entrepreneurs — access to counsel.

Prior to private practice, Dan served in several roles with the U.S. Small Business Administration (“SBA”) in Washington, D.C. As an Assistant Chief Counsel in the SBA’s Office of Advocacy, Dan helped shop owners, cattle ranchers, software developers, food exporters, and other small entities amplify their voice during the federal regulatory process. Later, as an Attorney Advisor for the SBA’s Office of Hearings and Appeals, Dan worked to ensure truly “small” firms received contracts, task orders, and other government contracts set aside for small businesses or specific socioeconomic groups like women-owned (“WOSB”), minority-owned (“MOSB”), or service-disabled veteran-owned businesses (“SDVO SB”).

Today, Dan collaborates with serial entrepreneurs and established companies alike on the complex legal issues affecting their businesses. Whether navigating state and federal agencies, developing a IP strategy, or analyzing a business’ size and affiliations for government programs, Dan provides his clients with access to a depth of knowledge and strategy to achieve their business goals.
