Underwriter Representation

The field of public finance has undergone dramatic transformation over the past several years, especially in the areas of issuer disclosure and reporting in the wake of the 2014 Municipalities Continuing Disclosure Cooperation Initiative.  The Municipal and Public Finance Group at Mitchell Williams, has maintained its position as a leader in the area of public finance by keeping abreast of the changes in the public finance area in laws governing disclosure, and has established the firm as a leading firm in the area of disclosure.

Our municipal and public finance attorneys routinely serve as counsel to each underwriter active in the region and are able to work with the underwriter and issuer to prepare the required disclosure documents, including the preliminary official and official statements.  Our team of lawyers is also able to draft and prepare the bond purchase agreement, continuing disclosure agreement, and the supplemental opinion letter to the underwriter.
