Bradley has proven experience as bond counsel in Alabama and Tennessee, and in public finance matters in other parts of the southeast. We were one of the first law firms in the southeastern United States to become nationally recognized bond counsel and to render approving legal opinions in the field of public securities.

Our Public Finance team regularly serves as bond counsel on general obligation securities, hospital revenue bonds, special tax obligations, utility revenue obligations, industrial development bonds, and many other types of structured debt transactions. Our client base includes numerous state-level authorities; municipalities; counties; pool-bond issuers; public schools, colleges, and universities; healthcare authorities and special-care finance authorities; boards of education; industrial development boards; airport authorities; regional and municipal providers of public utilities services (water, sewer, gas, electricity, and E-911); and other issuers of tax-exempt and taxable securities.

We regularly serve as underwriter’s counsel, disclosure counsel, and counsel to issuers of letters of credit and other credit enhancement instruments on primary and secondary market transactions. We also represent large money-center banks and community banks, financial advisors, and other market participants on direct placement transactions.

Our attorneys also focus on representing cities and counties in public-private partnerships to promote economic development. We regularly negotiate and draft development and related agreements to implement major mixed-use commercial developments, multifamily housing and hotel projects, healthcare facilities, industrial development facilities, and other tax-generating projects.

We also are regularly engaged to draft and review legislation relating to public finance and economic development incentives.
