Dan Moss has significant experience in business finance and restructuring, with a particular focus on complex corporate and cross-border reorganizations, distressed acquisitions, and crypto-related matters. He represents debtors, creditors, and creditor committees in significant corporate and government reorganizations and counsels clients on avoidance litigation and corporate governance matters.

Dan served as co-lead counsel for Diebold Nixdorf in its successful restructuring in 71 days of more than $2.7 billion in funded debt in the first-ever dual proceeding under the United States Bankruptcy Code and Dutch restructuring law.

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.

Dan also 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 leader of INSOL International and writes frequently about cross-border restructuring matters.
