We help bond issuers develop the right strategies, instruments and timing for new offerings. Our experience over the years runs the gamut of types of issuers and purposes:
State, county and private jails and prisons.
Economic and industrial development
Municipal economic development projects as well as "small issue" financings of privately owned manufacturing facilities.
Pollution control facilities, including sewage and solid-waste disposal facilities for private companies.
Hospitals, outpatient facilities, psychiatric facilities, clinics, nursing homes and life care facilities, both public and non-profit.
Affordable housing, including both non-profit and for-profit multi-family housing projects with low- and moderate-income set-aside requirements; first-time single-family housing for low- and moderate-income families and mortgage insurance pools.
Development by municipal utility districts (MUDs), public improvement districts and tax-increment districts in Texas, and assessment and Mello-Roos districts in California.
Water systems including wastewater treatment and disposal systems, solid waste disposal facilities, and gas and electric distribution systems. Our lawyers have helped finance public facilities, including water supply and wastewater treatment facilities, for six of the nation's 10 largest cities.
General public improvements financed by general obligations.
Power generation, transmission and distribution facilities. We have worked on more than 200 projects worldwide totaling more than $45 billion in financing for generation and transmission facilities. We work with public power clients daily in operational matters such as power-sales contracts, tax planning, regulatory issues and much more.
Public and private non-profit universities, colleges, medical schools financed by both endowment- and revenue-backed obligations; community colleges; public schools; and non-profit primary and secondary schools. We have assisted school districts and underwriters in placing more than $27 billion in public bond issues to finance education facilities in addition to annual cash flow borrowings.

General government purposes, including reopening funds, bond banks, and both capital improvement and cash flow borrowings.
