Bart has successfully prosecuted and defended many civil and criminal (federal and state) securities investigations over his thirty year career.
Bart also defended at trial the Chairman of a publicly traded company in what the Attorney General described as the largest and most complex white collar case in the history of South Carolina. Bart's client was acquitted of the securities fraud and conspiracy charges while being found guilty of the lesser charge involving "severe recklessness." That conviction is currently on appeal.
Bart is proactive yet discreet, understanding the sensitive nature of a criminal investigation to his highly respected clients. Whether the matter is being investigated by the United States Attorney, the State Attorney General, or an investigative agency such as the FBI or the SEC, he has a proven track record. While Daniel is best known for his successful courtroom defenses in high profile cases, his biggest wins have come privately, convincing prosecutors and investigators to decline criminal prosecution and quietly close their files.
As with other areas of Daniel's white collar practice, he discreetly determines the nature and scope of the problem and advises his clients on the advisability of self-reporting, commencing settlement discussions or mobilizing for trial.
Bart has also co-authored with a federal and state prosecutor Federal and State Securities Enforcement which was published in 2008. He has written, lectured and authored numerous articles on defending securites at trial.
