Daniel S. Agle

General Counsel, Shareholder

Daniel Agle is a key member of Klinedinst’s Professional Liability Group. He primarily defends professionals, including real estate agents, accountants, and attorneys in both federal and state court, and in binding arbitration.  Mr. Agle also assists both plaintiffs and defendants with their general civil disputes, both in the pre-litigation stage as well as in active litigation. He has focused on securities disputes, shareholder derivative litigation, contract disputes, financial fraud actions, and trade secret litigation.

Mr. Agle has handled a broad range of lawsuits from those with relatively small demands to cases with potential damages exceeding $200,000,000. In defending his professional clients, Mr. Agle has had significant success obtaining dismissals through pre-trial motions including demurrers, motions to dismiss, motions for summary judgment, and anti-SLAPP motions. Mr. Agle also has jury trial experience for those occasions where pre-trial disposition is not possible. He has achieved the highest AV®-Preeminent™ rating from Martindale-Hubbell.

In addition to assisting his professional clients with their litigation needs, Mr. Agle provides outside general counsel services to a number of real estate brokerages, accounting firms, and law firms.  That counsel ranges from risk management, to ethics, to compliance.  Most legal issues can be more efficiently addressed with early attention and action, rather than waiting until a lawsuit has been filed.

Mr. Agle also serves as the firm’s General Counsel, where he leads the Office of General Counsel.
