Jade focuses her practice on representing diverse clients in their financing and refinancing of infrastructure and capital improvements projects for state and local municipal entities. Her experience includes serving as bond counsel, disclosure counsel, and underwriter’s counsel on a broad spectrum of tax-exempt debt types and structures and related instruments, including revenue bonds, general obligation bonds, letters of credit, certificates of participation, and tax and revenue anticipation notes.
My practice focuses on structuring, documenting, and closing capital market transactions. Much of my work involves financing and refinancing infrastructure projects, such as capital improvements, water and wastewater facilities, light rail lines, museums, and airports. I also advise issuers, underwriters, municipal advisors, and investors in the fast-evolving landscape of municipal securities regulation and enforcement, including regulatory compliance and primary and secondary market disclosure. Representative clients include the City of Los Angeles, the State of California, the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, the County of Contra Costa, City of San Diego, County of San Diego, The Broad, the J. Paul Getty Trust, the State of New Jersey, and a number of underwriting firms.
I see a few things on the horizon: (i) increased focus on how we can leverage the capital markets to provide funding for social justice projects through the issuance of social bonds; (ii) more forward delivery transactions in order to lock in savings on refunding bonds; and (iii) an increased Securities and Exchange Commission focus on environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) disclosure.
