Daniel Deaton has a public finance practice in which he serves as bond counsel, disclosure counsel and underwriter’s counsel.
I serve as bond counsel, disclosure counsel and underwriter’s counsel in a wide variety of public finance transactions, including for states, cities, counties, airports, water and wastewater funds, among others. I have served as bond counsel involving complex variable rate products as well as the creation of new master indentures. I have served as disclosure counsel in some of the most complex financing in the public finance market. I have also served in various capacities in connection with university and cultural institution financings. In addition, I have recently served as underwriter’s counsel in connection with a tax exempt project financing transaction that financed the construction of facilities that will manufacture medium density fiberboard from rice straw.
I am a thought leader in the fast-evolving regulatory developments involving disclosure and due diligence obligations of issuers and underwriters. I am a frequent panelist and project participant on a wide variety of topics ranging from disclosure policies and procedures, underwriter due diligence obligations, application of securities laws to secondary market statements, among others.
