Public Finance

Sherman & Howard has practiced public finance law in the Rocky Mountain West for 120 years. In Colorado, Nevada and New Mexico, our Firm’s bond attorneys were the original drafters of many of the states’ authorizing bond statutes, evidencing our special expertise and our long commitment to providing innovative financing solutions. Whatever the project – utilities, schools, healthcare and cultural facilities, housing, infrastructure and more – we represent state and local governments in finding the most effective financing vehicle, tax-exempt or taxable.

In addition to serving our issuer clients as bond counsel and issuer’s disclosure counsel, we have extensive experience representing other transaction participants, including underwriters and private placement purchasers, borrowers, developers, trustees, and credit providers. Further, we assist our clients with post-issuance compliance, including arbitrage rebate and use of proceeds issues, continuing disclosure reporting, and IRS audits.

U.S. News/Best Lawyers recently honored Sherman & Howard’s Public Finance Department as a Tier 1 Best Law Firm in Denver, Colorado.
