Mitch Rapaport is a partner in the firm focusing in tax issues related to public finance and infrastructure finance transactions. During more than 30 years in practice, Mr. Rapaport has participated in a wide variety of tax-exempt financings, with an emphasis on public-private partnership transactions and other project financings. Mr. Rapaport has worked on numerous public power financings; stadium and convention center transactions; and education, infrastructure and other industrial projects.
Having worked for the U.S. Treasury and IRS and in private practice, I focus my work on three main areas, to assist clients in complex tax-exempt finance transactions and related matters.
I see an increasing interest in governmental entities and private companies working together to develop and finance critical infrastructure, particularly with respect to roads, bridges, airports and other transportation facilities, while maximizing the use of tax-exempt bonds to finance these projects. We have worked with a variety of industry participants in developing financing structures to meet these goals.
