Building on Bracewell’s combined strengths, we provide our governmental entity clients with full-service legal counsel, with a particular emphasis on general counsel services, public finance, real estate, transportation, construction law and related matters. As a result of our depth, Bracewell offers a cross-disciplinary team focused on municipal finance, project finance, developer’s counsel and special issuer’s counsel. We provide guidance in all aspects of tax incentives, economic development and public /private partnerships (PPP) matters, and represent the entire spectrum of public, private, non-profit and for profit entities. When necessary, we draft legislation and ordinances creating or amending state and local economic development programs. Our team creates innovative PPPs between local governments and the private sector to facilitate the development or redevelopment for projects in a broad range of industries, including transportation, hospitality, urban developments and urban parks, sports venues, social infrastructure, energy and educational institutions.
