McCarter Public Finance lawyers understand the challenges of planning and implementing publicly funded capital projects and have handled virtually every type of public financing transaction.

Government entities building or renovating public facilities need advice on tax-exempt and taxable bond financing. Private companies building factories and retail establishments need to analyze financial incentives and the methods for obtaining them. Banks, underwriters, and business owners need counsel on the impact of tax-exempt and taxable debt, and the impact of changing tax laws on proposed new financings.

Our public finance lawyers represent borrowers, letter of credit banks, trustees, and guarantors, and nonprofit institutions on financing capital improvements. We have detailed knowledge of aviation, housing, healthcare, utilities, and solid waste remediation financing. We are experienced in matters of fiduciary responsibility for disclosure and default, land use, and lender liability, including ISRA and CERCLA. We assist clients with underwriting requirements, including MSRB rules, municipal swaps, and letter of credit law.
