“We’re thrilled to welcome back Nick and put his 20 years of experience to work with our national tax practice,” said Ed Buchholz, chair of Thompson Coburn’s Tax practice. “Nick has a keen eye for detail and a wealth of experience in the type of complex financing transactions and tax questions we handle for clients across the country. He’s a wonderful asset for our group.”

He has represented bond issuers and underwriters in connection with new money bonds, refunding bonds, conduit financings, and taxable or tax credit bonds. Nick also advises clients on key tax issues pertaining to tax-exempt or taxable bond financings and strives to provide creative, practical solutions to ensure a successful transaction.
