With our extensive experience and focus on practical solutions, Jensen Baird serves as bond counsel, issuer’s counsel and borrower’s counsel for many of our government and non-profit clients. The attorneys in this practice group are members of the National Association of Bond Lawyers and the firm is recognized Maine bond counsel in the “Red Book.” We frequently represent public entities in public finance transactions such as general obligation bonds, tax anticipation notes, bond anticipation notes, and lease financing. We work with local banks, national lenders, municipal advisors, the Maine Bond Bank, and the Maine Health and Higher Education Facilities Authority on transactions of all sizes. Our attorneys also advise both public and private clients on matters involving tax increment financing, such as the establishment or amendment of tax increment financing districts and the negotiation or drafting of credit enhancement agreements. Our clients benefit from having the full resources of Jensen Baird’s Government Services Practice Group to ensure that we address every aspect of their public finance transactions, including voter approval, authorization of elected officials, sources of revenue, and tax code compliance.
