Daniel Schiau joined Tucker Ellis in 2016 as a summer associate.

With an undergraduate degree in economics, Dan's interest and focus during law school was corporate law. He enjoyed learning about the effective strategies transactional attorneys can use to counsel their clients.

Since joining Tucker Ellis, Dan has gained experience reviewing, analyzing, and interpreting complex agency regulations at the federal, state, and local levels. He has prepared various disclosure schedules and other documents for a client going through 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.
