Public entity representation

Do more with less. It’s been a common mantra of the private sector for years, but recent economic conditions have made the words ring even more true for government. In an era of unprecedented budget cuts and increasing debt, office holders, agencies and programs of all levels have had to become increasingly innovative with how they operate — while still being accountable for achieving the goals of their communities and constituents. We help municipal, city, state and federal entities create and implement solutions to keep communities operating and governments functioning. From bond issuances, to public and private technology transfers, to economic development projects, we help bring ideas and opportunities together.

Our experience includes:

  • Structuring tax-exempt and taxable bond financing and issuance of letters of credit
  • Representing issuers, underwriters, borrowers and trustees in note and bond transactions
  • Representing state insurance company liquidators in litigation
  • Representing federal deposit insurance and regulatory entities in litigation
  • Defending various public entities in contract and employment disputes
  • Serving as special counsel to state entities in litigation matters
  • Representing municipalities in litigation and contract negotiation
  • Assisting municipality with grant funding for park and nature center
  • Counseling solid waste district on certification and allocation of carbon credits for flagship renewable energy project
  • Guiding waste district with environmental permitting requirements for a partnership with a third party clean fuel facility
  • Representing various state and local facilities commissions in construction claims, contracts and litigation
  • Assisting in the creation and implementation of development financing vehicles, including tax increment financing and new community authorities

Our unique experience and understanding of how government functions helps us work with our clients to create real-world solutions. When resources are scarce, we work to bring public and private entities together for collaborative, long-term results.
