We use our experience to provide public, project and economic development insights to governmental clients, borrowing entities, banks and numerous related stakeholders. We focus on municipal consulting in the areas of infrastructure finance, economic development and redevelopment, real estate finance, healthcare finance, securitizations, and public-private partnerships.

We assist clients in both pre-issuance and post-issuance compliance with local laws and federal tax and securities laws, including rebate and tax audit work and responses to governmental initiatives like the Securities and Exchange Commission’s MCDC (Municipal Continuing Disclosure Compliance) initiative. We also assist clients with their review of contractual obligations, covenants and assessment, including restructuring and monitoring of such obligations and covenants.

At FBT Project Finance Advisors we recognize that when it comes to governmental operations, capital needs, public finance and project finance, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. We will work with you to develop solutions that fit your community’s needs, including (if necessary) innovative financing mechanisms. Solutions are designed to protect your balance sheet and help achieve your capital goals.

Strategic Advice

FBT Project Finance Advisors’ municipal finance and consulting practice is built upon the foundation of our team’s wealth of experience working as general counsel, bond counsel, issuer’s counsel, and as governmental advisors, representing and working with hundreds of local government entities and developers utilizing the financing capabilities of those governments. From cities and villages, to counties, townships and states, to hospitals, nonprofit organizations and real estate developers, our team understands the unique fiscal, operating and business challenges municipalities and private companies face in providing infrastructure and services to taxpayers with a shrinking pool of revenue.

Legislative Services

FBT Project Finance Advisors municipal finance clients also benefit from our public finance and government relations experience in crafting legislation and navigating the legislative process. As one example, David Rogers worked with Jonathan Miller and Brooke Parker of CivicPoint, an affiliate of Frost Brown Todd providing legislative and public affairs services to governmental units and businesses, to draft legislation that now allows property owners to use special assessments to finance energy efficiency projects.

The EPAD Act of 2015 allows the citizens of Kentucky to join 40 other states in using property assessed clean energy (PACE) mechanisms to lower the cost of these projects.
