Public Finance

Mackenzie Hughes worked closely with a large Upstate New York municipality in successfully negotiating a deferral of its obligations under its municipal bond, enhancing the municipality’s cash flow in a critical financial hardship period.

The prestigious Bond Buyers Municipal Marketplace ranks Mackenzie Hughes among the nation’s most highly recognized bond counsel. We have served as general counsel, and special counsel working closely with municipalities’ existing counsel, for numerous public entities in public finance matters. The firm specifically serves as bond or issuer counsel, handling such issues as federal and state tax exemption, property taxes (including tax-free zones), bond anticipation notes, revenue anticipation notes, financing-related legislation and resolutions, public hearings, municipal banking and accounting, and all other matters relating to public finance.
