Gretchen Sherwood is an attorney in our Project Finance and Public Finance group, that serves as counsel to nonprofit borrowers, underwriters, and banks in connection with tax-exempt and taxable financings, strategy and compliance issues. She also represents health care entities and nonprofit organizations in connection with various corporate matters. Gretchen also serves on the firm’s Pro Bono Committee.
I regularly serve as underwriter’s counsel or bank counsel on financing transactions for health systems, charter schools, colleges and universities, cultural institutions, and other nonprofit entities. I also represent borrowers, including hospitals, health systems, charter schools, educational institutions and other 501(c)(3) organizations in structuring and negotiating their taxable and tax-exempt financing transactions.
I regularly advise clients on ongoing compliance matters, including secondary market disclosure, Internal Revenue Service (IRS) audits, and change in use of bond-financed facilities.
I also advise health care providers implementing hospital/physician strategies, joint ventures, mergers and other strategic transactions, as well as corporate governance and formation matters.
