Dan Konigsburg

I am excited to join a firm that is in the vanguard of advancing trust in our capital markets. Given the many challenges in our policy and regulatory environment – from climate change reporting to the advent of artificial intelligence to a set of increasingly complex geopolitical conditions – I am honored and humbled to carry on the tremendous work of Stephen Allis. I am eager to get started.
