The son of a plaintiff lawyer, Dan decided early in his career that he wanted to work for insurers. He loves coverage. Want to know if something is an “automobile”? Ask Dan. Want to know if a “house” is a “home”? Ask Dan. Want to know the best toppings to cover a pizza? Don’t ask Dan: He can’t eat gluten.
Dan is a techie. He was articling in Ottawa when the dot-com bubble burst. He began considering the legal implications of cyber technology one night while eating a Beavertail. Over the years, Dan has become a leader when it comes to cyber liability, cyber coverage, cyber risk, and Cyber Monday.
Dan also seems to have the art of persuasion covered. While in law school, Dan convinced a local pub to name a burger after him. For only $3.99 (plus GST), patrons could order a fountain drink, side of fries, and a “Strigberger” (it cost an extra 50 cents for a “Strig with Cheese”). Following that success story, Dan persuaded a law firm to hire him, and the rest is Strigberger history (plus 50 cents for cheese).
