CHARLOTTE, NC – Shumaker Partner Daniel R. Hansen recently offered practical guidance relating to fidelity and surety matters in a treatise published in the American Bar Association’s (ABA) Electronic Payment Bond Deskbook. The Deskbook, sponsored by the ABA’s Fidelity & Surety Law Committee, will serve the surety and fidelity industry as a research resource with national coverage—one that makes relevant cases and statutes accessible with just the click of the mouse. Its chapters cover each of the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the Territories of Guam and Puerto Rico, as well as the Federal Miller Act.
Dan was selected to co-author the "North Carolina chapter" as a result of his long history representing surety companies and for his reputation for scholarship in the industry. Throughout his treatise, Dan shares practical examples and practice notes and outlines several ethical situations of which practitioners need to be aware.
“It was an honor to be asked to author a chapter for this treatise, alongside so many other prestigious lawyers,” Dan said. “I am proud to be a part of ensuring the treatise retains its reputation for quality and thoughtfulness for years to come.”
Understanding the emotional difficulties associated with complex litigation, Dan is known for giving clients trusted advice in the case at hand and in life. Corporate clients from a variety of industries turn to him for his extensive experience in commercial and business litigation, fidelity and surety law, wrongful-death and severe personal injury litigation, and construction law.
In practice for more than two decades, which included many jury trials, bench trials, and arbitrations, Dan represents businesses of all sizes in a variety of legal disputes and commercial transactions. A diplomatic problem-solver, he devotes approximately 60 percent of his practice to surety and construction law, representing sureties, contractors, owners, and construction materials manufacturers, including window manufacturers in commercial and residential claims, both in federal and state courts throughout the Southeast. Dan’s ability to remain diplomatic and solve complex problems also allows him to successfully represent clients.
