Julie Seymour represents and advises banks, borrowers (including hospitals, health systems, educational and cultural institutions, and long-term care providers), governmental issuers, underwriters, and trustees in all aspects of tax-exempt and taxable financings. Julie is a member of the firm’s Management Committee, which works with firm leaders to execute the strategic plan and oversee day-to-day operations.
In my finance practice, I regularly serve as bank, borrower, underwriter, and bond counsel on transactions for health systems, colleges and universities, cultural institutions, and other nonprofit entities across the country. This work involves the underwriting or direct purchase of tax-exempt bonds and credit and/or liquidity facilities issued to support tax-exempt and taxable municipal securities. I also counsel conduit borrowers in structuring and negotiating taxable and tax-exempt financing transactions and negotiate and draft documents in a manner that maximizes flexibility and protection for those borrowers. During my career, I have worked on billions of dollars worth of financings across many states, including variable and fixed-rate bonds, put bonds, self-liquidity bonds, lines of credit, accounts receivable financings, and swaps, as well as secured, unsecured, and syndicated lending transactions.
I anticipate increased demand for timely and detailed disclosure regarding privately placed bonds. In addition, as the country’s healthcare providers face various operational challenges, I anticipate assisting those providers and their bank partners work through covenant defaults and restructurings.
