International law firm Dorsey & Whitney has named litigation Partner Dan Goldberger as head of the firm’s New York office.

Goldberger succeeds Sandy Edelman as office head after previously serving as her deputy.

“Dan was a natural choice for Office Head,” said Edelman. “Dan is a gifted lawyer, distinguishing himself from the very first day he started at the firm. He is well liked by our colleagues and respected by our clients. He’ll be terrific in his new role.”

Goldberger represents clients in a diverse range of industries in federal court, state court private arbitration and before administrative bodies. His representations include matters relating to banking, investment funds, unfair competition, intellectual property with a focus on trademarks, technology, bankruptcy and licensing. In addition he regularly advises and litigates on behalf of clients involved in partnership, shareholder, LLC member, employment and other commercial disputes.

Goldberger is a member of Dorsey’s China practice, regularly representing Chinese banks in a wide range of matters.
