Julie Seymour represents and counsels banks and borrowers, including hospitals, health systems, educational and cultural institutions and long-term care providers; governmental issuers; underwriters; and trustees in connection with tax-exempt and taxable financings. Since 1990, Julie has been involved in billions of dollars of tax-exempt bond financings, including fixed and variable rate structures, as well as secured and unsecured lending transactions.
What do you focus on?
In my finance practice, I regularly work with financial institutions in connection with the direct purchase of tax-exempt bonds and credit and/or liquidity facilities issued to support tax-exempt and taxable municipal securities. In addition, I represent and counsel conduit borrowers in structuring and negotiating their taxable and tax-exempt financing transactions, and negotiate and draft documents in a manner that maximizes flexibility and protection for those borrowers.
I also regularly advise clients on ongoing compliance matters, including secondary market disclosure, Internal Revenue Service (IRS) audits, change in use of bond-financed facilities, the impact of covenants on affiliation activity, and reporting requirements for the IRS Form 990, Schedule K.
