As bond counsel, we have rendered opinions in connection with bonds issued by states, counties, cities, municipalities, school districts, and public authorities throughout the United States. These transactions have financed such diverse projects as highways and bridges, water and sewer facilities, mass transit systems, universities, convention centers and professional sports stadiums and arenas, charter schools, fire and police protection, courthouses, municipal office buildings, correctional facilities, and publicly-owned hospitals.
