Dan Myers practices exclusively in the field of automobile franchise law. The majority of Dan’s practice involves providing counsel to dealers with respect to ongoing disputes with the manufacturers, litigation of such disputes (including terminations, rejection of proposed ownership changes, facilities disputes, the relocation or addition of dealership points, and issues concerning franchise alignment), assisting clients with the purchase or sale of automobile dealerships, and working closely with state dealer associations on drafting and updating dealer franchise laws. Additionally, Dan has worked closely with NADA and serves on the NADA Legislative Committee. Dan has extensive experience with the various manufacturer imposed alternative dispute resolution procedures (including numerous appearances before the Ford Dealer Policy Board and General Motor’s Endispute Arbitration/Mediation Panels). Additionally, you may have heard Dan at one of his numerous speaking engagements. In the recent past, Dan has addressed the Automotive World Congress, the NADA Convention, the JD Powers Blue Ribbon Roundtable, the E-Automotive Conference, the AICPA Convention, and numerous other seminars for state dealer associations and 20 groups.
One of the first cases Dan handled was a franchise dispute between a central Florida Cadillac dealer and General Motors. That experience sparked an interest in dealer franchise issues. Dan worked at the firm for approximately a year and a half before going out on his own. During that year and a half Dan spent the bulk of his time representing automobile dealers in disputes with automobile manufacturers. Dan formed his own firm in 1987, concentrating solely on auto-industry issues and representing dealers in both state and federal courts, and in various administrative proceedings. During the late '80s and early '90s Dan’s practice was almost exclusively in Florida. In the early '90s and through to the present the focus has been more national in scope representing dealers in over 40 states.
Dan was admitted to the Florida Bar in 1985. He was admitted to the bar of the Supreme Court of the United States in 1994, and is also admitted in the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit; the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit; the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit; the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit; the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida; and the United States District Court for the District of Colorado. Because of the nationwide nature of the firm’s practice, Dan has been admitted pro hoc vice in numerous other state and federal jurisdictions.
