Dan Landau is a registered patent attorney with Hayes Soloway and has been with the firm since 2007.

Prior to relocating to Arizona, Dan served as an adjunct faculty member at the University of New Hampshire School of Law (formerly Franklin Pierce Law Center) teaching patent law students claim drafting techniques and strategy. Dan is a regular speaker on IP topics to companies, schools, and entrepreneurial organizations, including Tucson's chapter of Founder Institute where Dan serves as a mentor on legal IP topics.  

Dan graduated from the University of New Hampshire School of Law, wherein he served as a chair of the Franklin Pierce chapter of the Licensing Executives Society and a board member for the Moot Court Board. Dan coached a team in the S. Lefkowitz Moot Court Competition for trademark and unfair competition law and participated in the competition, winning first place in the oral argument for the North East region.
