General Counsel

Dario is the General Counsel of Precision BioSciences.

Dario provided legal and compliance guidance at multiple stages from development to commercial and medical affairs. At Precision, he manages the legal and compliance function for the entire organization, advising on all aspects of Precision’s business, including corporate governance, SEC reporting, manufacturing, development, HR, business development, facilities, and compliance.

Dario received his J.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law, and he clerked for Judge James L. Dennis on the United States Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans.
