After his studies, he specialized in taxes, starting at the Federal tax administration, in Bern, at the legal division of the withholding and stamp tax department. Preferring the advice side, Daniel joined the well-known advising firm Arthur Andersen, for which he worked until the winding-up of the company following the Enron case in the USA. Daniel then joined Ernst & Young, still in Bern, one of the other big tax and finance advising firms. He gained experience there as a manager until 2005, advising individuals and companies, working in German, English and French.
