Public Finance Leader Quoted on Orrick’s Top Bond Counsel Ranking

The Bond Buyer | January.11.2013

This article, recognizing Orrick as top bond counsel in the municipal bond market, working on 366 issues totaling $30.8 billion, quotes Public Finance Group chair Roger Davis.

"We've been pretty consistently ranked number one for about two decades and we're very proud of this," said Davis. The reason for their success, he stated, is pretty simple. "Our clients think well enough of us and the services they receive from us to keep hiring us as their bond counsel and as disclosure counsel, where we're also ranked number one."

Davis also said that other reasons for the law firm's top rankings include their great team of bond and tax lawyers, as well as their diversification - geographically and in terms of the types of matters.

"You name it - anything that involves a public entity and finance - we're probably working on a number of transactions in whatever category that may be. So whatever is hot will play to one of our strengths, and whatever is cold won't have a very large impact," Davis said.
