The Charlotte office of McGuireWoods seeks an associate to join its banking and finance practice, with a particular focus on public finance.
Since the inception of the practice at the firm more than 35 years ago, our lawyers have continually employed innovative financing techniques to achieve our clients’ objectives. We not only pioneered the use of public-private partnerships, special revenue, tax and assessment pledges, lease financings, tax and revenue anticipation vehicles, real estate secured loans, and moral obligation pledges and other subject-to-appropriation financings, we established the validity of these financing options through legislation, judicial validations and administrative interpretations.
Our exposure to virtually every federal tax and securities law issue, coupled with the breadth of our state law experience, allows us to help our clients navigate virtually every type of municipal financing regardless of location, type of security, method of issuance or repayment mechanism.
The volume of our work in both governmental and private activity bonds earns us consistent ranking among other top firms for public finance. The Bond Buyer, the daily newspaper of municipal finance, reported that McGuireWoods was ranked among the top three bond counsel, for the third time in four years, in the 11-state Southeast U.S. region (with total sales volume of $3.17 billion), as well as ranked No. 1 in Virginia for the fifth consecutive year and No. 5 in North Carolina.
Qualified candidates will have 2-4 years’ debt finance, public finance, or other transactional experience. McGuireWoods’ public finance practice includes both traditional financings for public entities and 501(c)(3) organizations to innovative financings of infrastructure, energy efficiency initiatives and tax advantaged projects using new markets tax credits and opportunity zones. We represent issuers, borrowers, underwriters, and lenders, and our practice includes a focus on both the tax and securities laws aspects of public finance transactions as well as the underlying deal structures. Candidates will have excellent academic credentials and solid law firm work experience. Please submit cover letter, resume and transcript
