Public Finance Law
Our experienced attorneys provide legal counsel in public financing, specifically the issuance and holding of tax-exempt bonds, for a variety of governmental issuers, including community colleges, colleges and universities, and other nonprofit entities. Shuttleworth & Ingersoll is listed in the Bond Buyer’s Municipal Marketplace (the “Red Book”) as nationally recognized bond counsel.
Bond financing work requires a deep understanding of the complexities of the rules and regulations of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) applicable to tax exempt bond issuances and the rules of the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) in the event the bonds are to be publicly marketed. As a full-service law firm, Shuttleworth & Ingersoll attorneys work collaboratively on related areas of law to inform the financial and operating position of issuers.
