The attorneys in Birch Horton Bittner & Cherot’s nationally recognized public finance practice have represented issuers, conduit borrowers, underwriters and credit enhancers of tax-exempt obligations of Alaska state agencies and municipalities for over 30 years. As bond counsel for Alaska issuers, we have rendered opinions on more than $3 billion worth of tax-exempt bonds and other obligations. This experience includes the following:
- General obligation bonds for schools, roads, water and sewer facilities, hospitals and other public improvements
- Revenue bonds for water, sewer and electric utilities; docks and wharves; electric generation projects; transportation facilities; and health care facilities
- Special assessment and service area financings
- Lease financings for buildings and equipment
Birch Horton Bittner & Cherot’s public finance practice is focused on creative problem solving. We pioneered collaborations between Alaska municipalities and private sector organizations on economic development projects. We have drafted enabling legislation for state and local financing agencies and have successfully defended litigation challenging the validity of municipal financings.
