Reinhart’s Public Finance attorneys bring projects to life every day. Whether it’s a new hospital or university fieldhouse, a multifamily apartment building or a manufacturing facility, our group has the knowledge and experience to handle the most complex public finance transactions. For more than 30 years, Reinhart’s Public Finance team has been involved in noteworthy public finance transactions in Wisconsin and across the United States. Our experience includes publicly offered tax-exempt bonds as well as direct bank purchase transactions.
We have served as bond counsel, bank counsel, underwriter’s counsel and borrower’s counsel in financings involving academic medical centers, hospital health systems, medical clinics, universities, private foundations and other 501(c)(3) organizations. We also have a wide range of experience in multifamily housing financing transactions, including those involving tax credits and Section 8 housing subsidies, as well as the construction and expansion of manufacturing facilities. Reinhart attorneys also regularly provide counsel on debt restructurings, interest rate swaps and other derivative products, as well as credit enhancements for taxable and tax-exempt bond transactions.
Reinhart’s breadth and depth as a corporate law firm complements the work of our Public Finance team. Members of our Tax Practice work closely with our Public Finance attorneys to provide assistance with various aspects of the deal, including structuring the transaction, analyzing private business use and post-issuance compliance. Our Public Finance attorneys also routinely work with other practice areas to provide timely expert advice and creative solutions to challenges, including Real Estate, Securities, Commercial Lending and environmental.
Helping our clients achieve their goals is of utmost importance to us and successful closings are a reason to celebrate, but we don’t stop working when the transaction closes. Our Public Finance and Tax attorneys regularly assist clients with post-closing matters such as implementation of post-issuance compliance policies, analysis of management contracts and other private use issues, compliance with arbitrage and rebate requirements, spend-down requirements and investment of bond proceeds, IRS audits, tax controversies and review of IRS form 990.
Reinhart’s Public Finance attorneys are all members of the National Association of Bond Lawyers and actively participate in NABL seminars, which keep them up to date on changes in the law and market activities.
From the preparation of RFPs to the design and implementation of post-issuance compliance policies, Reinhart attorneys have the expertise to advise our clients on all issues that arise in public finance and tax-advantaged transactions.
