SAN ANTONIO – Bracewell LLP announced today that James P. Plummer has joined the firm’s San Antonio office as a partner in the public finance department. He joins Bracewell from Norton Rose Fulbright US LLP.
“We are very pleased to welcome Jim to Bracewell,” said Bracewell Managing Partner Gregory M. Bopp. “Jim is a highly regarded practitioner and is an outstanding addition to our market-leading public finance practice.”
Plummer has more than 30 years of experience advising clients on tax-exempt financings, tax credits and governmental contracts, particularly with respect to tax-exempt housing finance. He is well-versed in all tax aspects of tax-exempt financings, including qualified 501(c)(3) bonds. Plummer has negotiated development, management and operating contracts involving private developments and governmental entities and integrating those contracts into tax-exempt financing structures. His clients range from large urban counties to national housing developers.
“Jim is an experienced, talented and creative lawyer,” said Barron F. Wallace, a partner in Bracewell’s Houston office. “We’re excited to work with him in strengthening our ability to serve clients in the public finance bond market and expanding our housing practice in Texas and across the United States.”
Plummer is the fourth in a series of strategic hires made by Bracewell since the start of the year. In March, Nancy C. LeGros joined the public finance team as a healthcare partner in Bracewell’s Dallas office. Nicolai J. Sarad and Fernando J. Rodriguez Marin also joined the firm in March as members of the project finance team in New York.
“Bracewell is a leader when it comes to public finance,” said Plummer. “I’m looking forward to working with my new partners, many of whom I’ve known for years, in continuing to serve the needs of our clients.”
Plummer graduated magna cum laude with a B.S. from Trinity University and earned his J.D. with distinction from St. Mary’s School of Law.
