Tax exempt financing is an important financing tool for non-profit and governmental healthcare providers and related market participants. These financings require familiarity with tax and securities regulations and rules relating to tax exempt financing, as well as knowledge of a broad range of bonds and financing structures, including variable rate bonds, derivative instruments relating to bond issues used to hedge interest rate exposure, various types of credit or liquidity enhancement and similar matters.
We have experience in structuring financings for healthcare groups made up of various non-profit and for profit entities. King & Spalding has a long history as a recognized bond counsel and is one of the leading firms in public finance. Our broad experience and expertise in healthcare financings allows us to anticipate issues which may arise in these complex financings, and to suggest solutions to resolve issues.
Our work includes healthcare financings throughout Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Florida and South Carolina, and in other jurisdictions outside of the Southeast.
Our lawyers specializing in public finance matters relating to the healthcare industry are regular speakers or panelists at meetings of the National Association of Bond Lawyers, and meetings of various state and local bar and industry groups. King & Spalding is the only firm in the United States which has had three lawyers serve as President of the National Association of Bond Lawyers, and one of our lawyers is currently an officer of this Association.
Several of our lawyers are recognized as members of The Best Lawyers in America, Georgia’s “Super Lawyers,” “Who’s Who in America,” the American College of Bond Counsel and similar groups.
