Dan Moss has represented debtors, creditors, trustees, and creditor committees in some of the largest and historic corporate and government reorganizations in the United States. He also has extensive experience counseling clients on fraudulent conveyance, preferential transfer, fiduciary duty, and corporate governance issues.
Dan recently served as co-lead counsel for the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors in the Toys "R" Us Property Company I chapter 11 cases and the Peabody Energy chapter 11 cases. Dan played a significant role in the City of Detroit's historic chapter 9 case — from litigating the City's eligibility for chapter 9 to confirmation of its plan for the adjustment of debts. He also represents the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority in connection with its revitalization efforts.
In connection with Jones Day's representation of the Chapter 7 Trustee of Anthracite Capital, one of the largest chapter 7 cases ever filed, Dan oversaw all aspects of this engagement, which resulted in a recovery of approximately $47 million for the estate and a release of more than $33 million in secured affiliate claims. He also was a member of the team that represented Chrysler in the sale of its assets to Fiat and the decision to reject certain dealership agreements.
Additionally Dan devotes time to monitoring various legislative proposals pending in Congress that would amend the Bankruptcy Code and pro bono activities such as the representation of disabled veterans. He is an active member of INSOL International and writes frequently about cross-border restructuring matters.
