Public Finance

We are a nationally recognized bond counsel firm and have been listed in The Bond Buyer’s Municipal Marketplace since 1970. Our bond counsel clients include state governments, quasi-public agencies, authorities, cities, towns, school districts and other special purpose districts. Our public finance attorneys use sophisticated tools to achieve client goals, including competitive and negotiated public bond offerings, direct purchases, private placements, tax increment financing, historic and low income tax credits, swaps and other financial derivatives, and a variety of infrastructure and economic development programs. Our public finance attorneys work as a team with colleagues in the firm’s banking, tax, securities, municipal law, and bankruptcy and workout areas. Firm attorneys from other disciplines join the team whenever a significant public finance transaction warrants their involvement.

In addition, our public finance attorneys frequently serve as counsel to national and regional investment banking firms in the underwriting of state and local government obligations, to banks in the direct purchase of state and local government obligations, and to credit enhancers, trustees, liquidity providers, and swap and other derivative providers.

We also represent schools and universities, healthcare facilities, nursing homes, social service providers and other 501(c)(3) entities in their conduit bond financings.

Our public finance attorneys have advised on a broad range of governmental and other public projects, including educational capital projects, healthcare facilities, nursing homes, assisted living facilities and continuing care retirement communities, affordable housing, land development infrastructure, transit oriented districts, and water and waste treatment facilities.
