McGuireWoods is the No. 1 bond counsel in the Southeastern United States
for 2016 with total sales volume of $3.45 billion and 42 deals, according
to The Bond Buyer, the pre-eminent newspaper covering the
municipal bond industry. It is the second time in three years the firm has
topped the list of leading bond counsel in the 11-state region.
The firm also ranks as the No. 1 bond counsel in Virginia and No. 2 in
“Being recognized as the leading bond counsel in the Southeast region
affirms the work we have done as a trusted adviser to clients in this
region and nationwide,” said Baltimore partner
Alan Cason, chair of McGuireWoods’ Public Finance Department.
The rankings are based on Thomson Reuters’ Southeast league table of bond
counsel firms in the region comprised of Alabama, Florida, Georgia,
Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina,
Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia.
The firm’s ranking follows its recent recognition as bond counsel in a
$1.13 billion deal to finance the separation of Vanderbilt University
Medical Center from Vanderbilt University, a transaction The Bond Buyer chose as the
2016 Southeast Region Deal of the Year.
