Public Finance

Powell, Youngblood, & Taylor has decades of experience in public finance and is listed in the Bond Buyer’s Municipal Marketplace (the “Red Book”). Our attorneys have devoted their professional careers to the representation of Texas public school districts and community college districts. As general and special legal counsel to Texas public school districts, we regularly serve as bond counsel or disclosure counsel in many types of public finance transactions, including the issuance of general obligation bonds, refunding bonds, maintenance tax notes, time warrants, qualified zone academy bonds, and qualified school construction bonds.

As underwriters counsel, our state and security law experience coupled with our depth of understanding of Texas public schools gives us a special vantage point from which to analyze disclosure requirements and support financial institutions in undertaking their due diligence. We pride ourselves on technical knowledge as well as unparalleled customer service. When our clients call, they will routinely reach a live person rather than a recording. We attend all the public finance related Board meetings to answer our client’s questions. We have found that attending to the small stuff makes the big stuff manageable.
