Restructuring and bankruptcy matters require patience, perseverance, and—perhaps most of all—flexibility in adapting to unexpected circumstances. Dana Kane brings all of this and more to her clients’ restructuring, bankruptcy, and creditors’ rights matters.

With more than 25 years of hands-on legal and management experience, Dana is a proven negotiator, a savvy business strategist, and a keen listener who understands what it takes to help her clients achieve the results they need.

Dana served as in-house counsel for a company that specializes in buying and selling claims and interests in distressed situations—primarily in pending federal bankruptcy cases and insurance insolvency proceedings under state law. That in-house experience gave her deep experience in the world of distressed debt and a valuable understanding of how to think like a client from both a legal and business perspective.

In her private practice, Dana represents liquidating trustees, major secured and unsecured creditors, creditors’ committees, debtors and lenders in Chapter 11 and Chapter 7 bankruptcy cases.

Much of Dana’s practice also involves serving as a post-confirmation trustee, which requires tremendous business sense, legal know-how, and personal discipline.

My clients often face tremendous pressure and a lot of uncertainty. That’s where my in-house background really comes into play: I help them cut through the noise, identify what they need, and chart a course to get them there.”
