The intersection of charitable giving and exempt financing is rich and complex territory, requiring educated, smart and sensitive counsel. Our attorneys are among the best in the business.
We represent numerous museums, colleges and universities, hospitals and community foundations on all aspects of their charitable giving, from restricted gifts to complex planned giving. And we support these capabilities with our extensive knowledge around the investment of charitable assets.
As counsel in complex structured transactions, we focus on maintaining the integrity of the tax exemption on the bonds being issued. Our lawyers are often involved in deals that develop tax structures that preserve the borrower’s endowment without yield restricting its investments.
