Boston, Nov. 19, 2014, — Business Law Attorney Connie Dai was recently selected by superlawyers.com as a Rising Star Super Lawyer in Boston. Ms. Dai is an attorney at law firm CUTLER & WILENSKY LLP in Boston.
Attorney Dai has a rare blend of legal and business experience both nationally and internationally. Being raised in Shanghai, she has lived in Calgary, Toronto and Boston. Internationally, Attorney Dai worked on cross border transactions for McDermott, Will & Emery’s Shanghai office. She has extensive business experience in advising a variety of industry sectors in China, Canada and the U.S. Earlier in her career, she oversaw the enforcement of anti-trademark infringement efforts by Coca-Cola China, as well as participated in joint venture negotiations that led to the establishment of several Coca-Cola bottling companies in China.
Attorney Dai has a very diverse educational background, which explains her forte in complex cases in business law. She received B.A. in Business English from Shanghai University, M.B.A. Finance from University of Calgary, and J.D. from Suffolk University Law School.
During a phone interview, Attorney Dai said she was honored to be selected to the Super Lawyers list. Ms. Dai mentioned that she has seen a rise of clients from China in recent years. “They want to invest in the US, and sometimes get frustrated as the legal and business environments are quite different here. I learned to set their expectations early in the process, and guide them through the legal process of forming a business venture or investing in properties,” said Attorney Dai.
