Our municipal finance team uses a unique combination of governmental experience, historical knowledge of state and local issuers, and practical but creative tax advice to help governmental entities, nonprofit organizations, hospitals, educational institutions, and private sector clients meet their tax-exempt financing needs. As municipal governments face new challenges like privatization, as well as traditional concerns involving procurement, financing, and economic development, Krieg DeVault’s experience is invaluable to both public and private sector clients.
