"Charles Dale has been our contact with K&L Gates. He has provided extremely valuable, thoughtful, effective, and economical advice on numerous bankruptcy and distressed situations. I believe he has by now advised us on at least ten different matters over the years. We have always been very impressed and pleased with his services. He is especially helpful in thinking through when to pursue legal action, and when to avoid doing so. We anticipate having him handle as much of our work in this area as possible on an ongoing basis."

"Chad is very well regarded at our firm and a top choice for bankruptcy counsel. We've found him to be very thoughtful and technically strong, but he also brings an understanding of business issues and a perspective on what is important. He's helped us navigate through technical issues where other lawyers may get bogged down with the details."

"We work with several top law firms in various disciplines and over time have come to use Mr. Dale as our "go-to" bankruptcy counsel, whether it be for acquiring a company out of bankruptcy or seeking advice for one of our portfolio companies. Mr. Dale is quick on his feet, decisive, and offers very practical business advice in a timely manner. In every scenario we've discussed with him, he's had specific, relevant experience and context from which to offer his advice and the pros and cons of a given situation. He is always available, responds quickly, and does not need extensive research projects to come up with his answers or advice. We have received numerous compliments about Mr. Dale from other parties involved in a few different situations we've worked with him on. Mr. Dale will continue to be our attorney of choice in any situations related to his areas of expertise."

- Matthew Keis (Gemini Investors), Wellesley, MA

He is intelligent, communicative, and highly professional, and always manages to make you feel as though you have his undivided attention. His guidance has proved invaluable to our business and I would not hesitate to seek his counsel again."
