Foster Pepper is proud to be nationally recognized for our public finance work. We have maintained a nationally recognized bond counsel practice for more than 70 years and are well-known by issuers, underwriters, rating agencies and bond issuers for our extensive knowledge. 

We are the largest and most experienced group of public finance lawyers in the Pacific Northwest. Our team is consistently ranked among the top ten in the nation for “Top Bond Counsel – Competitive” by Thomson Reuters. In 2019, U.S. News/Best Lawyers® survey listed the firm’s public finance group as a Seattle Tier 1 practice and a National Tier 2 practice. We are active participants in both the National Association of Bond Lawyers and the American College of Bond Counsel.

We regularly serve as bond counsel to more than 450 governmental agencies in Washington, Oregon, Alaska, Idaho and Montana, including the State of Washington, counties, cities and towns, port districts, public utility districts, housing authorities, school districts, public hospital districts, water and sewer districts, irrigation and reclamation districts, fire protection districts and other municipal and quasi-municipal corporations. We also participate in financings as disclosure counsel, underwriters’ counsel, nonprofit borrowers counsel, and other similar roles.
