This is the first installment of my Lawyers Who Lead series, which will feature insights and advice from a broad range of lawyers, and will showcase their career paths and what they think it takes to be successful as a lawyer today. 

I’m excited to feature Daniel (Dan) Shulman in the Lawyers Who Lead series. Chicago-based Dan is an experienced intellectual property litigator and appellate lawyer at Vedder Price.

Dan brings a unique perspective and client-focused approach to his practice honed by over a decade serving as in-house as chief IP counsel for a multibillion-dollar conglomerate holding thousands of worldwide patents and trademarks.

In his bio, I love that Dan says his approach to his clients follows the Golden Rule – he treats his clients the way he expected to be treated by his own outside counsel. You can read Dan’s full bio and connect with him on LinkedIn.
