Public & Infrastructure Finance Associate – New York The New York office of Squire Patton Boggs is seeking an associate to join our Public and Infrastructure Finance practice group. The ideal candidate will have at least 3 years of experience in a transactional practice. About the Public and Infrastructure Finance Practice The public and infrastructure finance practice is a transactional practice involving the development and application of knowledge and skills similar to those required to represent parties in corporate loan and capital markets financing transactions. It is characterized by the participation of public bodies in transactions. The public finance market is a “debt” segment of the U.S. capital markets, involving the issuance by state and local governmental entities of bonds and notes to provide financing for various purposes. In most instances, and subject to various federal tax requirements, the interest payable on that debt is not subject to federal income taxation. The transactions may be categorized in different ways, but the most basic distinction in terms of structure and security is between “traditional finance” transactions, which involve the financing of public infrastructure by state and local governmental entities (e.g., cities, schools, the state, and special districts), the repayment of which is secured by public revenue sources, and “conduit finance” transactions, which involve the issuance by public bodies of debt instruments to finance facilities for use by private entities (e.g., developers, privately owned utilities, nonprofit hospitals and educational and cultural institutions), the repayment of which is required to be made by the private entity rather than the public issuer. Conduit finance transactions may also include the application of various types of tax credits and tend to be more “corporate” in nature. This is a national practice necessitating consistency of approach, and it is a collegial practice in which teams of lawyers, paralegals, and support staff across our offices work closely together to meet our clients’ needs. Attorneys who are most likely to succeed are those who are able to communicate effectively and work collaboratively with others, who may be located in our NY office or in other firm offices. Job Description The position offers the successful candidate an opportunity to provide general transactional support within the practice group. Responsibilities will include document drafting and coordinating transactions. The skills and talent needed to succeed in this type of practice are consistent with high levels of academic success. Academic and Professional Qualifications •J.D. degree or equivalent •Must be admitted to a U.S. state bar and be in good standing. Admission to the State Bar of New York is expected if not currently admitted. Knowledge, Skills & Experience •Preference will be given to those with experience in transactional practice, especially candidates with experience in public finance, project finance, lending, real estate transactions, or working or representing public bodies. •Experience working with/for or representing public bodies is desirable. •Excellent communication skills (written and oral) and judgment are essential. •We also consider a demonstrated ability to work as part of a team, to exercise sound, practical judgment, and to interact directly with client representatives to be of equal importance.
