This closing session takes attendees through a typical bond issue - from the initial client call to closing - using an interactive, informal platform that incorporates concepts from across the General Sessions and Target Sessions. Panelists play the roles of issuer, underwriter, bond attorney, and tax attorney as they navigate through a bond transaction from start to finish. Along the way, they encounter, explain, and resolve issues typically encountered in public finance transactions.
