Noah Lebowitz is an associate in the Project Finance and Public Finance group with experience serving as bond counsel, borrower’s counsel, underwriters’ counsel, disclosure counsel, and bank counsel on tax-exempt and taxable public finance transactions.
Prior to joining Nixon Peabody, Noah served as Assistant County Executive and Director of Communications for Monroe County, New York.
My practice focuses on assisting clients with financing a wide variety of projects, including infrastructure and capital improvements for state and local governments, transportation, K-12 and higher education, student loan securitizations, public power systems, facilities for nonprofit organizations, and multifamily housing. In addition to negotiating and drafting the underlying finance and disclosure documents for public finance transactions, I counsel clients with respect to evolving regulatory developments involving primary and secondary market disclosures.
The COVID-19 pandemic and resulting financial difficulties and uncertainty faced by issuers of municipal securities will further increase investor demand for thorough and timely market disclosure, as well as enhanced regulatory scrutiny by the Securities and Exchange Commission. The breadth and timeliness of such disclosures should be carefully considered in order to give investors a fair and accurate portrayal of an issuer’s current financial condition and expectations for future performance. The unprecedented scale of the pandemic can have a debilitating effect on issuers when determining how to draft disclosure documents while facing so many unknowns. We have the unique experience to assist issuers in attacking these challenges head-on.
