What do you focus on?
I enjoy leading one of the largest public finance practices in the United States, one that consistently ranks among the ten most active bond and underwriter counsels nationally and that has won national recognition for its work year after year.
I have significant experience on P3 transactions with lenders, sponsors, underwriters and governmental entities on projects throughout the country. Recent or current projects include the Goethals Bridge, I-595, IH-635, Denver Eagle P3 and Dulles Metrorail Extension.
My team successfully represented our clients on over $1 billion of one-month LIBOR Floating Rate Notes under newly created discrete trusts to restructure auction rate securities and refinance a warehouse facility.
What do you see on the horizon?
As always, I focus on which financial products can be most helpful to our clients in meeting their goals to advance their mission.
