Our exceptional services extend beyond the closing of the transaction.  We provide counsel on post-issuance matters that include, but are not limited to, arbitrage rebate compliance, review of Schedule K to the Form 990, credit and liquidity facility extensions and replacements, post-issuance compliance, document amendments and IRS audits.  We are committed to providing our clients with comprehensive, high-quality advice and counsel at a reasonable cost.
