We’ve been our clients’ trusted advisors in economic development and public finance transactions for over 30 years. We serve as general bond counsel and issuer’s counsel to state and local governments and authorities, as well as counsel to private parties doing business with or before governmental bodies, including conduit issuers, underwriters, borrowers, purchasers, trustees, and credit providers. Our focused knowledge, experience at the state and local government levels, and the relationships we’ve built over decades enable us to help both public entities and private companies navigate the complexities of public finance to achieve the best financing deal.
We’re proud to help clients improve their communities. A variety of major public projects were built through the deals we’ve helped structure, including projects in higher education, transportation, solid waste and wastewater management, mixed-use, retail, industrial, commercial, as well as healthcare and housing facilities. To support our clients’ projects, we’ve counseled them on structuring general obligation bonds, 501(c)(3) financings, and both tax-exempt and taxable securities.
Our broad experience in the nuances of public finance allows us to suggest the perfect structure for their financing needs, including putting together unique, mix-and-match deals. We’ve handled tax increment financing for infrastructure, infrastructure development districts, tax-exempt financing for privately owned so-called “exempt facilities,” and sophisticated financings for real estate and economic development.
We’re at the forefront of developments in public finance, so we can maximize the benefit of our work to our clients. Our attorneys speak at real estate and financing conferences, and their leadership in the field of public finance has been recognized by their yearly inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® lists.
