The Ballard Spahr LLP practice specializes in bonded debt, and benefits from the firm’s expertise in local and labor tax. Vincent Marriott, based in Philadelphia, leads a team that is experienced Chapter 9, acting for indenture trustees, credit enhancers and borrowers. Public finance specialist William Rhodes, also in Philadelphia, is head of the firm’s municipal recovery initiative. The department represented the National Federation of Municipal Analysts in the preparation and submission of an amicus curia brief at the First Circuit. The matter relates to a ruling at the US District Court for the District of Puerto Rico against the holders and insurers of special revenue bonds issued by the Puerto Rico Highways and Transportation Authority; associate Chantelle McClamb was heavily involved in this case. In another highlight, the practice is representing Wells Fargo, as indenture trustee, in the default and bankruptcy of a multi-hospital health system in California that has multiple series of municipal bonds outstanding. Adding strength to the national finance and bankruptcy bench are William Wassweiler, who joined the team in Minneapolis after the firm merged with legacy firm Lindquist & Vennum LLP; and David Fernandez, who arrived in the New York office from Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney.
