Do you need bond counsel?

We have experience in the roles of bond counsel, underwriter’s counsel and issuer’s counsel, and we have been involved in financings for a wide variety of public and private projects, including drinking water facilities, sewer and wastewater facilities, and solid waste facilities.

Our experience includes issuance of revenue bonds for municipalities and public service districts, as well as revenue bonds for other governmental entities. Our attorneys can address the spectrum of legal issues that arise in bond transactions, including “private use” limitations and constitutional issues.

Based upon a team approach used by all of the practice groups in our firm, the Bond Counsel Group works closely with firm attorneys who focus their practices in other areas of law.

For example, we collaborate frequently with our lawyers who practice public utility law, real estate law, environmental law, economic development and federal taxation.

The firm’s experience in these other areas allows us to assist clients in meeting project objectives and evaluating alternative financing structures.

Spilman has a strong public utility practice representing municipalities and public service districts. We have extensive experience in public service commissions’ case processing methods. We also have knowledge and experience with the state and federal funding agencies involved in infrastructure projects.

Our experience in all of these areas allows us to respond quickly and effectively to develop creative solutions for public bond issues.
