On each financing, bond counsel, issuer?s counsel, and underwriter?s counsel will each perform the work standardly delineated between those three roles. The firm(s) selected hereunder may also serve on other University financings that may arise during the course of this engagement.
Respondents will be asked to provide information regarding experience in the area, the total annual par amounts of negotiated tax-exempt financings the firm served as issuer counsel as well as other information regarding respondent's practice.
