Daniel Krisch is a leading appellate advocate and skilled trial practitioner who represents a wide variety of corporate, institutional and individual clients during all stages of litigation. Prior to joining the firm in 2012, Daniel was a partner at a boutique appellate firm in Hartford. He began his career in 1999 as law clerk to former Chief Justice Ellen Peters on the Connecticut Supreme Court.

Daniel has argued over forty appeals before the Connecticut Supreme and Appellate Courts, and has represented clients before the United States Supreme Court and the Second Circuit Court of Appeals. His appeals have involved multi-million dollar tort verdicts, complex divorce cases, election disputes, serious criminal convictions and issues of constitutional law and fundamental rights. In 2008, while at his prior firm, Daniel won a reversal of a $41 million personal injury judgment against Sordoni/Skanska Construction Co., the largest judgment reversed on appeal in Connecticut history. In addition, Daniel frequently assists trial counsel with raising, arguing and properly preserving potential appellate issues during trial and advises insurers about appellate issues during litigation involving their policyholders.

Daniel regularly represents companies, insurers and individuals in civil litigation in state and federal court. His trial practice includes complex tort, products liability and property cases. Daniel also counsels and represents candidates and interested individuals in election dispute cases and in proceedings before the State Elections Enforcement Commission.

Daniel is AV-rated by the peer-reviewed legal directory Martindale-Hubbell and has been recognized by Best Lawyers in America in the categories of Appellate and Insurance Law. He is a co-author of The Encyclopedia of Connecticut Causes of Action and, from 2004-2011, co-authored the Connecticut Superior Court Civil Rules, Annotated, and the Connecticut Superior Court Juvenile Rules, Annotated. Daniel writes a bi-weekly column, "Dan K.'s Inferno," in the Connecticut Law Tribune.

Daniel is an elected member of the American Law Institute and has taught moot court and appellate advocacy at the University of Connecticut School of Law. He has served as Assistant Secretary-Treasurer of the Connecticut Bar Association and chair of the CBA's Young Lawyers Section and as a member of the CBA's House of Delegates. Daniel is currently the Vice-Chair of Community Partners in Action, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to building a better community by providing services that promote accountability, dignity, and restoration for people affected by the criminal justice system.
