Dan Nabel currently practices law in-house at Riot Games. He teaches “Video Game Law” at the USC Gould School of Law and co-authored Video Game Law in a Nutshell (West Academic, 2018). Nabel began his career as a litigator at Greenberg Glusker Fields Claman & Machtinger, LLP in Century City. While in private practice, Nabel successfully litigated dozens of cases and counseled clients on a wide range of topics, including real estate, business and intellectual property. He also published more than 50 articles in the Daily Journal and other trade publications.

Prior to joining Riot Games, Nabel directed the Intellectual Property & Technology Law Clinic at USC Gould. While directing the clinic, he supervised law students in public interest cases as they counseled and represented policymakers, artists, film-makers, innovators, game-makers, non-profit organizations and others on a range of intellectual property and technology issues. Under Nabel’s direction, the clinic successfully obtained the first-ever Digital Millennium Copyright Act exemption for the repair of agricultural machinery, as part of the U.S. Copyright Office’s triennial Section 1201 rule-making proceeding.

He has provided pro bono legal services to numerous clients of the Alliance for Children’s Rights and Public Counsel in adoption, immigration, fraud and elder abuse cases. Nabel also serves as chair of the advisory council for CASA of Los Angeles — an organization dedicated to improving the lives of neglected and abused foster children with trained volunteer advocates.

Re: Susan Estrich

Susan Estrich writes an op-ed about the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act is not responding well to the COVID-19 outbreak. She said, "Right now, HIPAA is making it impossible to know whether you have been in contact with an infected person and, in turn, whether you may be infecting a high-risk loved one."
