Panel Details and Chairs
NOTE: All sessions are Central Time
 

General Session: Lessons from Reedy Creek                                                   Return to Agenda

Chair: Scott Lilienthal, Hogan Lovells LLP, Washington, DC

Panelists:

Drew Slone, Shareholder, Winstead, PC,  Dallas, TX
Rebecca Lawrence, Associate General Counsel, D.A. Davidson Companies, Minneapolis, MN
Jonathan Johnson, Transition Partner, Kutak Rock, LLC, Tallahassee, FL
Anne Ross, Principal Consultant, Muni Credit & Compliance Advisors, LLC, New York, NY
Michael Rinaldi, Senior Director, Fitch Ratings, New York, NY

Actions taken by the Florida legislature to dissolve the Reedy Creek Improvement have sent shockwaves through the market for special district bonds. Brian Egan, NABL Director of Governmental Relations will facilitate the panel discussion with distinguished experts covering the Reedy Creek situation and the potential broader impact going forward on special district financings specifically and on the municipal bond market in general.   


The Role of Issuer’s Counsel - Before, During, and After Bond Issuance      Return to Agenda
Chair: Everett B. Martinez, Denver International Airport, Denver, CO

This panel will explore the role of issuer’s counsel with a particular focus on the perspective of the in-house issuer’s counsel.  How can issuer’s counsel help clients set themselves up for success in their transactions?  How should issuer’s counsel interact with the other legal and financial professionals involved in the bond issue?  How does the issuer’s counsel make sure that its client is protected as much as possible while achieving the issuer’s goals for the financing?  What is the role of issuer’s counsel after bonds are issued, and how can the issuer’s counsel help the issuer achieve post-issuance compliance?  Does the role change if issuer’s counsel is outside or internal counsel?


Tax Issues in 501(c)(3) Financings                                                                      Return to Agenda  
Chair: Taylor L. Klavan, Squire Patton Boggs (US) LLP

This panel will focus on Section 501(c)(3) organizations created by or “backed” by developers or other private parties to accomplish tax-exempt bond financing, with discussion of the issues that arise under Section 501(c)(3) itself as well as the structuring concerns under Sections 145 and 141 and the management contract safe harbors of Revenue Procedure 2017-13. The panel will also provide an overview of the unique aspects of qualified Section 501(c)(3) bond transactions, with emphasis on the ownership requirement of Section 145 and how it impacts financing leasehold improvements and structuring transactions involving a leasehold interest. Finally, the panel will work through the patchwork of options for classifying certain entities as organizations described in Section 501(c)(3) as compared with Section 115(1)/instrumentality or Section 501(c)(4), and how that status impacts available financing options.


Arbitrage and Rebate:  Can I Earn It?  Can I Keep It?                                        Return to Agenda
Chair: Sarah A. Breitmeyer, Chapman and Cutler LLP, Chicago, IL

This panel session will address arbitrage and rebate concepts commonly encountered in structuring transactions and post-issuance compliance matters, with a particular focus on allocation of proceeds including final allocation considerations, arbitrage elections including strategies involving waivers of temporary periods, commingled fund accounting, investment considerations and rebate computations.  The session will also address unique issue price situations. Hypotheticals and discussion will address these topics and practitioner considerations in a changing interest rate environment. The session will assume that the audience has a general understanding of arbitrage and rebate principles, but topics will nevertheless be selected for broad appeal, focusing on common issues practitioners have faced in recent years.


Ethics: Conflicts, Competence And Confidentiality                                           Return to Agenda
Chair: Bill Burns, Gilmore & Bell, P.C., Kansas City, MO

This panel will include public finance practitioners and legal practice liability insurer representatives discussing latest trends in how bond counsel can be exposed to professional liability. The panel will feature a practical discussion of how exposure to liability can be reduced and how losses may be prevented and interactive questions regarding application of the model rules to public finance transactions. Emphasis will be given to understanding current and ever-expanding bases of liability under the Model Rules, recent ethics decisions, industry standards, Treasury guidance and SEC Enforcement actions. Legal malpractice carrier personnel will offer unique perspectives on liability scenarios for practitioners. Current discussion topics will include changes to multijurisdictional practice, non-lawyer ownership of law firms, and other developments in ethics and professional responsibility.


Tax Exempt Leasing                                                                                               Return to Agenda
Chair: Nate Canova, Dorsey & Whitney LLP, Salt Lake City, UT 

The panel will present a short, high-level summary of the fundamentals of tax-exempt leasing (including need-to-know state law and federal tax and securities law concepts) and discuss the use of tax-exempt leases in energy savings performance contracting. Panelists will then move on to a discussion of more advanced topics such as improper vendor prepayments and the avoidance of investment-type property and private loans; tax-exempt financing of intangibles such as software, service contracts, training, support and warranties; and the nuances of qualified volunteer fire department financings. Panelists will use hypotheticals when presenting certain of the advanced concepts.


Underwriter’s Counsel Roundtable                                                                      Return to Agenda
Chair: Karen M. Jordan, Dentons US LLP, St. Louis, MO  

This panel will review the duties, responsibilities, and potential liability for underwriters in public offerings of municipal securities and the role of underwriter’s counsel in representing underwriters. The panel will also include a discussion of best practices in evaluating and documenting the transaction from the outset through closing.

 

 


NEW SESSION!  Let Me Check With My Desk                                                 Return to Agenda
Chair: Partner, Lee Birchall, Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP, Birmingham, AL

Let Me Check With My Desk is a new panel that will educate bond lawyers on the role played by the municipal bond trading desk. Participants in a typical municipal bond transaction (other than bond lawyers!), including investment bankers and representatives of IPREO and DTC, will give attendees a behind-the-scenes look at how municipal bonds are structured, marketed, priced, and closed. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of the factors that shape pricing and trends in the municipal bond market, the mechanics of underwriting an actual sale of municipal bonds, as well as special topics such as the inner workings of DTC, proprietary trading risk, and hypothetical situations posed to the investment banking panelists. 

 

Preparing to Deliver the Bond Opinion: Tax Diligence and Documentation     Return to Agenda
Chair: Brian P. Teaff, Bracewell LLP, Houston, TX

Purchasers of tax-exempt obligations typically rely on the “unqualified opinion” of bond counsel as to the excludability of interest on the bonds from gross income for federal income tax purposes. The tax due diligence performed by bond counsel is a critical foundation for the delivery of the opinion. This panel will explore various approaches to compliance with applicable tax requirements and will engage attendees in a discussion of the due diligence, legal research and analysis, and documentation necessary to support the tax opinion.  

 

Bank Direct Purchase – General Considerations (Non Tax)                               Return to Agenda
Chair: Vanessa S. Legbandt, Stradling Yocca Carlson & Rauth, Newport Beach, CA

In this panel, we will discuss structuring and legal considerations that arise in private placement bond issues and bank loans. Topics that will be discussed include: trends in bank loans and other direct-placement financings, such as letters of credit, hybrid financings, liquidity and operational financings; securities law considerations; negotiation of covenants and other contract terms; use of forward delivery arrangements, “Cinderella” and other refunding tools; application of certain MSRB rules; roles and responsibilities of Municipal Advisors and Placement Agents; and considerations relating to continuing disclosure “financial obligation” filings. The session will emphasize general concepts which practitioners may face on direct purchase transactions and specific provisions that are frequently negotiated in such transactions.


Multifamily Housing                                                                                               Return to Agenda
Chair: Jon P. Jurich, Pacifica Law Group, LLP, Seattle, WA

This panel will review current and emerging market trends and related issues for housing practitioners, including current deal structures and issues relating to volume cap use, federal legislation, the interplay of the low-income housing tax credit and housing bonds, “workforce” and nonprofit housing developments, and disclosure considerations following COVID and with the rising interest in “ESG” investments.


Hot Topics in Securities Law                                                                                Return to Agenda
Chair: Kimberly Magrini, Ballard Spahr LLP, Philadelphia, PA

This panel will include practitioners and securities regulators discussing the latest federal securities law issues facing the municipal bond market, with a focus on how lawyers may assist their clients in addressing these issues. While the final topics are subject to change based upon current events, expect to hear updates about (i) risk factor disclosures, (ii) interpretation and impacts of the recent SEC pronouncements and initiatives concerning ESG disclosure, and (iii) recent enforcement actions and pending rule changes impacting securities laws in the municipal market.


Tax Concepts In Bank Direct Purchase And Bank Qualification                        Return to Agenda
Chair: G. Mark Mamantov, Bass, Berry & Sims PLC, Nashville, TN

In this session, tax law practitioners will discuss the tax law issues that arise in bank direct placements and bank loans, with a portion of the session devoted to tax considerations regarding bank-qualified bonds. Issues that will be discussed include: determining issue price in a direct placement; reissuance in the direct purchase context; replacement proceeds issues that arise in connection with bank covenants; contingent interest analysis; weighted average maturity calculations for direct loans and margin rate factor provisions. Bank qualification discussion will focus on issues relating to refundings and deemed designations, timing of designations, impact of premium, aggregation rules and opinion practice. In connection with the discussion of reissuance, the phase-out of LIBOR, and the use of other benchmark rates will be briefly discussed in connection with the reissuance discussion, although that topic will be discussed in more detail in other panels.

 

SEC Enforcement                                                                                                    Return to Agenda
Chair: Edward Fierro, Bracewell, LLP, Houston, TX

This panel will examine recent SEC Enforcement actions and priorities, including those initiated by Chairperson Gensler and the Biden administration. The discussion will explore the importance of accurate disclosures beyond those contained in offering materials and continuing disclosure filings in light of the February 2020 OMS Staff Bulletin No. 21. The panel will also consider how training and policies can impact the Staff’s charging decisions, including the significance of a robust disclosure compliance program. Additionally, the panel will provide an overview of the SEC Enforcement Staff’s process and procedures and how a municipal issuer can best navigate through an investigation when it finds itself within the SEC’s crosshairs.

 

Tax Hot Topics                                                                                                         Return to Agenda
Chair: Christie L. Martin, Mintz, Levin, Cohn, Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo, P.C., Boston, MA

This panel will discuss current federal tax issues, including any recently released notices, rulings, regulations and/or other guidance. The panel is expected to address the latest legislative financing proposals and matters that are likely to arise with the change in interest rate environment. In order to address any late-breaking topics, the specific topics are subject to change. Final topics that will be addressed will be communicated to attendees via NABL Connect prior to The Workshop.

 


Refunding and Reissuance
Chair: William A. Milford, Bryant Miller Olive P.A., Jacksonville, FL                             
Return to Agenda

This panel will focus on recent developments and discuss and analyze a variety of tax issues through a combination of hypotheticals and a roundtable discussion of refunding and reissuance trends. The panel is designed to appeal to attendees with a working knowledge of the applicable federal tax rules pertaining to refunding and reissuance transactions. 

 

 


Private Activity Bond Tests                                                                                         Return to Agenda
Chair: Neil J. Kaplan, Hawkins Delafield & Wood LLP, New York, NY

This panel will review the basic principles of the private activity bond tests as well as address issues frequently encountered in the identification, measurement, and allocation of private business use. The panelists and the audience will have the opportunity to issue spot and discuss potential private activity issues during the discussion of hypotheticals addressing both pre and post issuance events. The audience should be well-acquainted with the private activity bond tests. Those who are not familiar with the application of the private activity tests or who would like a refresher on the basics should review the materials produced at The Essentials conference.

 

Qualified Opportunity Zones & Economic Development Project Financing            Return to Agenda
Chair: Kostas A. Poulakidas, Taft Stettinius & Hollister LLP, Chicago, IL

Designed for public finance attorneys involved with economic development, this panel will provide an overview of Qualified Opportunity Zones and how they have been used with bond financed projects and other state and federal economic development programs. This panel is not intended to provide in-depth analysis of Opportunity Zones, but rather is targeted to help public finance attorneys understand the basics of Opportunity Zones and how to discuss Opportunity Zones with municipal and private sector clients about transactions that may involve tax-exempt and taxable bond financing.

 

LIBOR Phase-Out Update                                                                                         Return to Agenda
Chair: Barry M. Rothchild, Nixon Peabody LLP, New York, NY

This panel will inform and update attendees as to the current state of the LIBOR Transition and challenges surrounding the phase-out of LIBOR, which occurred for most non-USD LIBORs at the end of 2021 and will occur for the more widely used USD LIBOR tenors on June 30, 2023.

Public Private Partnerships – From Start To Finish                                             Return to Agenda

Ethics: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: What is Implicit Bias? Its Effects on the Practice of Law and Practical Solutions                                                                                                         Return to Agenda
Chair: Latasha R. Thomas, Clark Hill PLC, Chicago, IL

America has been heralded as the great “Melting Pot”. However, over the years, studies have shown that we all have unconscious biases that unintentionally affect every aspect of our dealings with others. Is bias an unfortunate and inevitable part of our “DNA” as Americans? This panel will provide practitioners with invaluable insight into the issue of unconscious bias and solutions, as well as a forum for dialogue and exchange of ideas on this sensitive issue. 
 

Health Care Facilities - Non-Tax Matters                                                                 Return to Agenda
Chair: Jessica M.J. Zaiger, Polsinelli PC, Kansas City, MO

This panel will examine non-tax issues for financings of 501(c)(3) health care providers, with the panel addressing hot topics in health care finance. The primary focuses are expected to be considerations for forward delivery issuances, ESG disclosure and qualification considerations for health care issuances, unique structures, disclosure, and considerations for financings involving providers in the senior living industry, and rising numbers of default and potential default scenarios in the industry. Time permitting, the panel may also address additional topics including: the impacts of mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures (including non-acute care facilities and providers); and varied financing structures and products unique to health care providers and facilities. 
 

Deal Gone Bad                                                                                                          Return to Agenda
Chair: Hobby Presley, Maynard Cooper & Gale, Birmingham, AL

This panel will focus on three phases of a “deal gone bad”. The first phase, the default and mobilization stage, includes issues such as the standard for notice to the public market under Rule 15c2-12, the effect of cross-default provisions and “most favored lender” provisions, and mobilization efforts by the bond trustee and other creditors. The second phase, the workout phase, includes issues such as the trustee’s duties under the prudent creditor standard, communication strategies for informing bondholders, the use and effect of waivers and forbearance agreements, bond document provisions for control of remedies, and reissuance issues. The third phase, bankruptcy, will focus on eligibility for Chapter 9, some key differences between Chapter 9 and Chapter 11, and practical aspects of navigating through bankruptcy for the issuer or borrower and the creditors. 
 

Ethics: Ethics and Technology                                                                                Return to Agenda
Chair: Ryan K. Callender, Squire Patton Boggs (US) LLP, Cleveland, OH

The COVID-19 pandemic changed the way we practice as public finance practitioners and for most of us, it is the “new normal.” Law firms, both large and small, are significantly reducing their office sizes and numbers and “work from home” is proving to not be just a fad. This panel will take an in-depth look at the ethical issues surrounding the practice in municipal finance transactions in light of these changes, and the application of ethics rules to selected topics. What efforts should we undertake to preserve client confidentiality and protect clients from threats before, during and after closing?
