- Retirement facilities
- Public and private educational facilities
- Water and sewer projects
- Highway and other surface transportation projects
- Industrial development bonds
- College/university housing, athletic and other facilities

The principal amount involved in these financings has ranged from a low of $35,000 for fire trucks to more than $500 million for state and local government bond issuances.
Our clients include various governmental issuers, authorities and agencies, underwriters, conduit borrowers, developers, lenders, credit and liquidity facility providers, and trustees. Members of our public finance team have also served as bond counsel to the state of South Carolina and the state of North Carolina.
