David Gossett’s leadership and innovative thinking are crucial not only to Nexsen Pruet, but also to many of the clients he represents. He is the firm’s Managing Partner for Professionals.
In that role, David works closely with practice group leaders and department heads to ensure that attorneys and staff members are receiving the resources necessary to provide clients with high quality and comprehensive legal services. No matter how daunting an issue, David seems to find a way to meet firm needs while keeping his calm and controlled demeanor that puts people at ease.Rural America Bond Program
David’s innovative way of seeing and solving problems for his clients is evident through the creation of the Rural America Bond Program.
In the mid-2000s, many of the law firm’s clients were facing a common issue. They wanted to help launch business, infrastructure, health care, education and other projects in rural parts of the county. But for various reasons, traditional financing was not available. David and Pat Brown set out to fix that. They originated the concept and crafted a pilot program adopted by the U.S. Farm Credit Administration.
Since then the program has been used for building a critical access hospital in Louisiana, schools in Utah, Texas, New Mexico and Montana and to pay for a furniture manufacturing facility in North Carolina.Financing Fuels our Economy
David’s law practice is focused on representing institutions that provide financing that fuels America’s economy, including some of the larger agribusinesses in the country. He recognizes that without a qualified lender, it is practically impossible for businesses to start, grow or expand.
Because the very nature of economic development and real estate projects involve some element of risk, David’s decades of experience helps him provide perspective and advice that take the worry out of deals, whether they are asset-based, commercial or construction and development loans. When a need arises, David can guide clients through workouts and debt restructuring.
