Trustee Representation

At Mitchell Williams, our Municipal and Public Finance Group understands the fiduciary duties owed by the bond trustee to the bondholders, and our team is often engaged to advise the trustee about the financing, advocate the trustee’s interest and role in and liability for the transaction, provide advice and counsel to the trustee regarding the trustee’s duties under the indenture and other bond documents, and in the case of a default, advise the trustee on the appropriate exercise of its rights and remedies.  Our team has served as trustee’s counsel in a variety of bond financings and to every corporate trustee active in the state of Arkansas.
