For commercial banks that provide credit to municipalities and nonprofits, we offer structuring advice, draft deal-specific documents, ensure compliance with each client’s credit standards, and balance conflicting concerns of borrowers, rating agencies, regulators, and investors.
We support our bank clients from start to finish, offering a mix of innovative solutions, timely service, and common-sense problem-solving. We work across all sectors in the public finance market, including states, municipalities, and agencies, health systems, universities, and other nonprofits, often for taxable and tax-exempt private placements, direct purchases, bank loans, and letters of credit and standby bond purchase agreements. Our national reach gives us broad exposure to the latest financing techniques so we can respond creatively and effectively to the needs of our clients.
Serving as counsel for issuers and borrowers, as well as banks, we understand the market and can effectively advise clients on market trends and opportunities as they arise.
And because our team includes former bankers and issuers supported by our Public Finance, Tax, and Securities teams, we’re ever mindful of increasing scrutiny by government regulators, rating agency analysts, money market funds, and other purchasers of municipal debt.
