We represent both county and municipal governments as well as school boards and special districts in its role as Bond Counsel, including the use of Community Development District (CDD) financing. In recent years, the State of Florida has benefited from the use of CDDs, allowing the private bond financing of public infrastructure improvements.

We also represent not-for-profit and for profit corporate borrowers in private activity bond financings involving manufacturing, healthcare and educational facilities. Our experience includes representing banks and corporate trustees in such financings with respect to their roles as the providers of letters of credit and corporate trustee services. In addition, we have extensive tax experience related to Section 103 of the Internal Revenue Code and the issuance of tax exempt obligations, including taxable and tax exempt bond financing.
