Daniel J. Doron focuses his practice on the labor and employment aspects of M&A transactions on both the buy-side and sell-side. Whether representing a strategic acquirer or private equity investor, Daniel assists clients to understand and mitigate employment-related risks and exposure. He has advised private equity clients on labor and employment matters in hundreds of platform and add-on acquisitions in industries that include technology, media, food, fitness, manufacturing, healthcare, veterinary care, biotech, travel and hospitality, automotive, education, waste management, infrastructure, utilities, energy, and insurance. Daniel’s experience extends to counseling clients in significant real estate transactions and on the particularized issues involved.
In addition, Daniel has extensive experience assisting clients to navigate complex and sensitive employment matters that may arise during or after a transaction. He also regularly works with clients, post-closing, to implement “best practices,” often with an eye toward preparing a company for an eventual exit.
As a regular part of his practice, Daniel serves as a trusted advisor to clients on compliance with the panoply of federal, state and local employment laws. This includes assisting clients to formulate legally compliant employment policies, counseling clients through challenging personnel decisions, and advising clients in implementing and executing policies and decisions in a defensible manner. He routinely negotiates and drafts employment and separation agreements and assists clients to manage reductions in force.
Daniel is also highly experienced in handling employment disputes, most particularly in the areas of restrictive covenants, misappropriation of trades, discrimination and compensation claims.
