Squire Sanders has claimed the No. 1 spot for the 11th consecutive year in Thomson Reuters’ rankings of bond counsel law firms in Arizona.
The rankings are based on the principal dollar amount of long-term municipal new bond issues sold in 2011. During this period, Squire Sanders served as bond counsel on 15 Arizona bond issues worth approximately US $1.5 billion.
Partners Charles James, Jr., Robert Olson and Timothy Pickrell lead the firm’s Phoenix-based public finance team.
“Squire Sanders is committed to the Arizona community and appreciates the opportunity to serve as bond counsel on major public projects and programs throughout the state,” James said. “Earning Thomson Reuters’ top ranking for the past 11 years demonstrates our public finance team’s focus on providing quality, strategic legal services.”
The firm’s public finance lawyers guide clients through financings for a range of public infrastructure projects including facilities for transportation, utilities, education, healthcare, sports and entertainment venues, and general state and local government uses.
Squire Sanders has lawyers in 36 offices and 17 countries around the world.
