The lawyers in our Public Finance Practice Group assist state and local government entities with financing projects and other funding needs through the issuance of municipal bonds and other funding mechanisms. Our public finance lawyers also represent developers, manufacturers, 501(c)(3) organizations and other private clients in obtaining funds for projects through tax-exempt and taxable financing transactions.

Our firm’s public finance practice focuses on representing public and private clients in Alabama and Florida. However, we also currently provide representation for a 501(c)(3) organization that pursues financing arrangements and tax benefits for student housing projects for the benefit of public and charitable colleges throughout the country. Having represented both government and private-sector clients in public finance matters for decades, our lawyers’ experience sets Hand Arendall Harrison Sale apart from other regional law firms practicing in this area.

Broad Experience in a Diverse Range of Public Finance Matters

The lawyers in our Public Finance Practice Group have served in all of the traditional roles associated with public and private securities and other public finance matters. This includes serving as bond counsel, underwriter’s counsel, disclosure counsel, issuers counsel, borrower’s counsel, 501(c)(3) counsel and bank counsel. In addition to our work in the public and private education sectors, our recent projects in the area of public finance have involved new industrial operations and expansions in the aerospace, shipbuilding, retail development and heavy manufacturing industries.

Public finance transactions are unique not only as a result of the nature of the transactions themselves, but also as a result of the extraordinary breadth and volume of rules that apply. Public finance transactions present a host of complex legal and regulatory challenges, and overcoming these challenges requires the advice and representation of counsel with specific experience not only in the type of transaction at hand, but also serving in the specific capacity in which representation is needed. With our lawyers’ extensive experience in public finance matters, we are able to efficiently and adeptly assist government entities and private companies (both for-profit and not-for-profit) in all aspects of all types of public finance transactions.
