Daniel V. Gsovski’s diverse practice covers a wide
range of commercial, intellectual property, antitrust and
consumer protection matters, both before judicial,
administrative and arbitration tribunals throughout the nation
and as a counselor and adviser on compliance issues and
transactions. As the firm’s senior class attorney, he is among
the most experienced attorneys in the nation in the defense of
class action litigation in the state and federal courts, in all
phases of such proceedings, from the trial level through all
levels of the appellate process including proceedings before the
Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation. Prominent among his
achievements is the defense victory in the only nationwide
action under the federal Magnuson-Moss Act ever tried to
verdict, an outcome which not only vindicated his client, a
major automobile manufacturer, but ultimately resulted in the
imposition of substantial monetary sanctions against opposing
counsel. Other areas of law to which Mr. Gsovski has litigated
include constitutional and international law and civil and
employment rights and product liability.
