Public purpose funding and borrowing activities revolve around a complex combination of statutes, timing and countless other details. But also critical to successful funding — beyond the legal complexities — is an understanding of a transaction’s practical aspects (how an issue is put together, the role of the other parties to the transaction, to name a few) and of the way government wheels turn on financing issues.
In an area where legal knowledge and sound judgment are the product of years of experience and the volume and variety of transactions, Colón Law Firm has earned a reputation for good, old fashioned hard work. We have assisted local governments in raising capital for public-interest projects ranging from higher education needs to infrastructure improvements.
The Colón Law Firm has extensive experience in providing public finance legal services to governmental entities such as municipalities and school districts in the issuance of debt securities for the financing and development of major capital projects.
The Public Finance Group at Colón Law Firm offers services in all areas of public finance including:
- General obligation bond financings.
- Revenue bond financings for utilities and other revenue producing enterprises.
- Private placements with the Texas Water Development Board
Our experience includes representation as co-bond counsel, co-disclosure counsel, special tax co-counsel, and commercial paper co-counsel. Since 2008, the Colón Law Firm has worked on approximately $2 billion of municipal bond obligations, $1.3 billion in commercial paper obligations, $398 million in educational institution financings and $49 million in private placements. That kind of volume makes us one of the largest Hispanic-owned public finance practices in the region.
