Overview

Dan Bulfer has more than 10 years of experience representing employers in labor and employment matters.  Mr. Bulfer is a trusted advisor to clients on a broad range of employment, compliance, and risk management issues, assisting clients in all stages of the employment relationship from hiring through workplace investigations, corrective action, and termination when required.  A problem-solver, analyst, innovative thinker, and business strategist, he helps clients find non-litigated solutions whenever possible.  But, when litigation cannot be avoided, Mr. Bulfer vigorously and efficiently defends clients before administrative agencies and courts, from the filing of the initial charge or complaint through the highest stages of appeal.

Prior to becoming a litigator, Mr. Bulfer worked in-house for the California Department of Justice and in the private sector.  With a background in information technology and management, he has a passion for emerging technologies and a high degree of technical literacy.  He understands the business of leadership, dispute resolution, and risk management, and devises legal and risk mitigation strategies that facilitate growth and account for business realities.
