We bring unmatched experience to complex financing issues through the experience of our lawyers in the areas of state and federal tax law, securitizations, bankruptcy, real estate and structured finance. Accompanying such broad and deep expertise is our commitment to responsiveness and creativity in working with financing participants while limiting costs to a very competitive level. Our national public finance attorneys have delivered multifamily bond counsel opinions nationwide as we consistently rank at or near the top of annual multifamily bond counsel and underwriter counsel rankings.

Our close relationships with multifamily bond issuers, trade groups, credit enhancers and hedge providers bring credibility and confidence to transactions which pose novel and challenging issues. And our national network of offices provides a platform for local service and financing expertise from coast to coast. Recently, our national public finance lawyers took the lead in developing with the U.S. Treasury and government-sponsored enterprises a comprehensive program that stimulated financing of thousands of multifamily units and provided liquidity facilities to numerous statewide multifamily bond programs. Lawyers in our national network also possess intricate knowledge of issues posed by low-income and historic tax credits, defaults and workouts, hedging mechanisms and derivatives based upon multifamily housing bonds which add to our ability to complete complex multifamily financings as quickly and as economically as possible.
