Daniel Schiau is an associate in Tucker Ellis’s business department.

Having earned his undergraduate degree in economics, Dan's interest and focus during law school was corporate law, where he enjoyed learning about the effective strategies transactional attorneys can use to counsel clients.

Since joining Tucker Ellis, Dan has worked on a number of corporate transactions involving buyers and sellers of various sizes and sophistication, including several employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) transactions, representing both institutional and individual ESOP trustees from the corporate due diligence perspective. He has also worked on the acquisition of a national bank by a state-chartered bank and the merger of two national banks and their holding companies, in each case with publicly traded stock as part of the merger consideration. Dan has gained experience reviewing, analyzing, and interpreting complex agency regulations at the federal, state, and local levels and prepared various disclosure schedules and other documents related to a reorganization and merger. He has also researched and advised a client on its attempted qualification as a "financial institution" within the meaning of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Improvement Act of 1991 (FDICIA) by virtue of being a "financial institution" within the meaning of Regulation EE of the Federal Reserve Board.

A Cleveland native, Dan enjoys spending his free time with his fiancée Katie on Lake Erie. During football season, Dan can be found cheering on the Clemson Tigers.
