Dawn M. Cica

Dawn has more than 25 years of experience working on transactions of all types, including transactional aspects of bankruptcy and creditor’s rights such as strategic resolutions, workouts, restructurings, settlements, debtor-in-possession financings and asset sales. Her transactional experience also extends to a variety of other industries, particularly the complex details surrounding the gaming and real estate fields.

Notably, on behalf of the Nevada Department of Environmental Protection, Dawn was part of a team that handled the negotiation of a settlement among various state and federal government agencies allowing for the confirmation of a reorganization plan in the Tronox bankruptcy that ultimately resulted in a recently approved litigation settlement of more than $5 billion, with almost a quarter being distributed to the State of Nevada for environmental remediation.

In addition to her transa

ctional experience, Dawn has built a renowned bankruptcy practice in the State of Nevada representing creditors, committees, affiliated parties and debtors. She has been involved in many influential Nevada bankruptcies in various industries, including the Aladdin Resort, Station Casinos, Riviera Hotel & Casino, Jerry’s Nugget, Las Vegas Monorail, Lake Las Vegas, South Edge, Consolidated Resorts, Viansa Winery, Tower Homes, Village at Centennial Springs, CommPartners, Global Axcess, MEGO Financial, Integrated Financial Associates, USA Capital, Rodeo Creek Gold, Martifer Solar USA and the Nevada Cancer Institute. She has also participated in bankruptcies in other states where she is licensed, as well as in Delaware.

From the negotiation and execution of initial lending agreements, through modifications and forbearances, foreclosures,
guarantor lawsuits and bankruptcy matters, Dawn has counseled lender, guarantor and borrower clients on the full scope of their legal issues in major commercial and real estate matters and in commercial bankruptcy cases and workouts. She has advised banks in connection with large corporate, middle market, and retail lending disputes.
