Overview

Anne’s work in local government and community development before entering private practice means she understands the entire landscape of tax credit investments and tax-exempt finance.

Anne draws on nearly 30 years of practice experience to keep deals on track and help clients achieve their goals. She works with investors, developers and lenders on a broad range of transactions involving tax credits and other tax incentives, including New Markets Tax Credits, federal and state historic rehabilitation tax credits, and low-income housing tax credits. Such projects can involve multiple tax credits, tax-exempt bond financing, and other state and federal subsidies.

Anne handles every aspect of tax-credit finance, ranging from structuring the initial transaction and documentation, asset management, workouts and restructurings and unwinds.

In addition to her work in the tax credit area, Anne represents developers, issuers, bond purchasers, credit enhancers and underwriters in connection with the issuance of municipal bonds.
