Bond Counsel

Our team has a deep understanding of state and federal securities and tax laws, which we draw on to help bond issues achieve their financing objectives. We provide full-service bond counsel in all aspects of public and private offerings of debt securities by state and local governments, non-profits and for-profit entities, and other public and quasi-public institutions.

We partner with clients on complex, conduit transactions involving housing, industrial development, hospitals and other healthcare facilities, higher education, not-for-profit organizations, waste disposal facilities, airports and state agencies. In 2020, for example, we served as bond counsel in the issuance of more than $1.363 billion in bonds for the Houston Airport System during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We represent issuers, underwriters, trustees, third-party credit providers and borrowers in the issuance of traditional fixed-rate bonds or variable rate debt and develop commercial paper programs. Our tax attorneys structure finance options for our clients and represent clients in post-issuance compliance matters and IRS examinations. 

Our experience and size — combined with our innovative solutions and broad understanding of public finance law — provides a unique package that allows clients to receive a fully integrated, inventive solution for any transaction.
