We have dedicated teams working in both U.S and Chinese jurisdiction.

Complex Debt Restructurings
Working closely with lawyers in our corporate restructuring practice, we are able to provide fully integrated advice across the entire credit cycle, from the origination of the debt to amendments, debt buy-backs, refinancings and the restructuring and renegotiation of debt instruments in capital structure. Dai & Associates,P.C. represents both borrowers and lenders in relation to the restructuring of a wide range of financings involving various industries. Our experience extends to both in- and out-of-court restructurings, financial recapitalizations, business reorganizations and liquidations. We advise on insolvency issues in corporate and financing transactions and on distressed debt trading and securities issues.
We are experienced at negotiating with various tiers of creditors, who have disparate rights and objectives, and marshalling them toward a negotiated solution that allows all parties to move forward with a financing package and avoid the potentially damaging alternative of a formal insolvency process.

We represent lead lenders and borrowers in the investment grade syndicated lending marketplace. We have extensive experience in structuring and documenting (both domestically and internationally) commercial paper backstop facilities, working capital and term loan credit agreements, and syndicated letter of credit facilities. With regard to investment grade financing, our experience includes:
- "Jumbo" acquisition financings
