Public finance


As you continue to operate and grow in this economy, the need to secure financing is critical. While banks have dramatically reduced their lending capacity, government lending has grown exponentially. Our professionals are constantly looking at government incentives as opportunities for our clients, and are here to help with all types of financing transactions, including taxable and tax-exempt ones for both nonprofit and for-profit projects. We’ve represented cities, counties, cultural institutions, healthcare providers, housing authorities, school districts, state governments and port authorities – meaning we understand how businesses like yours work. We have successfully secured low-interest loans, tax credits and grants for a number of our clients across multiple industries. Through our experience, we know how to get every last penny from each program that may apply to your situation and can secure funding as expeditiously as possible.

We’ve also served as counsel to underwriters, placement agents, borrowers, lenders, letter of credit providers, and fiduciaries in all types of taxable and tax-exempt bond transactions, as well as state and local economic incentive and development programs. Additional experience includes:
  • Complex, multi-layered development projects
  • Conduit borrowings for real estate acquisitions, renovation and capital equipment purchases
  • General obligation bond and note offerings
  • Transactions involving:
    • Infrastructure improvement
    • Economic development
    • Location of facilities
    • Housing development
    • Public and public/private partnership development

You also benefit from working with attorneys who have served as public officials in state, county and city government, and as investment bankers and accountants.
