More recently Dewi has advised the Indonesian central bank on the Indonesian ISDA Master Agreement project, and advised a global financial services company on a financial guarantee scheme on unsecured properties to be utilised to free local bank's capital charge.

Dewi's experience includes advising on syndicated and bilateral loan transactions (for finance, telecommunications, manufacturing companies, and others), debt restructuring, distressed assets/debt sales, trade finance, escrow arrangements, derivatives, negotiation of International Swaps and Derivatives Association (ISDA), various banking products and security arrangements.
