Construction, design, and real estate clients rely on Dan's decades of experience and valuable in-house perspective when they face big challenges and big opportunities. He offers them a true 360-degree view of the construction and real estate business, from financings and transactions, to federal and state compliance matters, to labor negotiations, to insurance coverage, to litigation and dispute resolution.
Prior to joining Much, Dan served as senior vice president and general counsel for McHugh Enterprises Inc. During his time at McHugh, Dan handled billions of dollars in construction, design, and development contracts for projects around the country, including the 101-story St. Regis Tower, the construction of portions of the Jane Byrne Interchange, and the Hiltons at McCormick Place Hotels, the only privately owned hotel connected to Chicago's McCormick Place convention center.
During Dan's time at McHugh, the company was a large general contractor that constructed heavy infrastructure, rail, and general building projects around the country. The company was also a prominent self-performing concrete contractor and was a licensed structural engineering company. Dan guided the company through its biggest construction transactions and disputes, as well as labor and employment issues, licensing, private company corporate structuring, government compliance, and insurance matters. In addition to assisting the company with its core business needs, Dan also provided advice to the McHugh family on a variety of matters. In 2019, he was selected as one of the city's "Notable General Counsel" by Crain's Chicago Business.
