The Public Finance practice group of Woods Rogers handles general obligation and revenue bond financing for cities, counties and towns; tax-exempt leasing; industrial development bonds for manufacturing facilities, multi-family and single family housing, 501(c)(3) facilities and other eligible facilities; and all related matters.

Over the years, the firm has represented:

  • Municipal issuers
  • Issuing authorities
  • Conduit borrowers
  • Corporate trustees
  • Bond purchasers
  • Underwriters
  • Remarketing agents
  • Issuers of letters of credit
  • Liquidity providers

This broad experience gives the firm sensitivity to the concerns of all parties involved in a bond issue and enables the firm to more effectively represent a client in a particular transaction.

The firm has participated in structuring and document preparation and review for a broad range of publicly offered and privately placed bond financings, including:

  • Governmental purpose financings (both general obligation bonds and revenue bonds)
  • Financings for manufacturers
  • 501(c)(3) financings for colleges, hospitals and other charitable organizations
  • Multi-family and single-family housing issues
  • Issues for a wide variety of other conduit borrowers

We have been involved in both private placements and public offerings. While the bulk of the firm’s public finance practice has involved tax-exempt bonds, we have also participated in a number of taxable issues.
