DANIEL S. WRIGHT provides general business legal services in the fields of commercial real estate, entity formation and governance, joint venture/equity structure arrangements, intellectual property, and various other transactional practice areas. Dan has experience working with organizations both large and small to achieve their goals and understands their different organizational and business needs.

Dan has given several seminars (in-house and via invitation) concerning such issues as basic estate planning and Georgia's new advance directive for healthcare. Dan particularly enjoys the aspect of teaching his clients the ins and outs of estate planning, as with a few simple moves, a lot of money and emotional pain can be avoided.
