Working across Nixon Peabody’s offices, Emily will principally focus on leveraged finance while also working on corporate trust matters.
“We continue to expand our firmwide team to meet growing client demand across our leveraged finance and corporate trust practice areas,” said Amy Charamba, Nixon Peabody partner and leader of the firm’s Global Finance practice. “Emily’s municipal finance background will be an asset to both our corporate trust and our leveraged finance clients.”
Having worked primarily on general obligation financings for school districts and local governments, Emily has deep experience in federal securities and tax law, critical focal points for clients across Nixon Peabody’s Global Finance practice. Prior to joining Nixon Peabody, Emily focused her practice on public finance, representing local governments, school districts, fire districts, utility districts, and underwriters as bond counsel and special counsel on a range of financial issues.
“We are thrilled to welcome Emily to Nixon Peabody and introduce her to our clients,” said Jared Lusk, managing partner of the firm’s Buffalo and Rochester offices. “Emily is a great fit for our firm’s culture and identity, having spent her career helping municipalities and businesses create positive impact in the community.”
