He works on both taxable and tax-exempt transactions and advises clients on general issues and solutions concerning government stakeholders.

Evan is experienced in drafting bond offering documents, completing due diligence and advising clients on complex financial structures with varying sources of revenue. He is versed in transactions backed by tax increment financing, sales taxes, property taxes, special fees, special assessments and real estate. He is familiar with financings occurring at all stages of a project, whether it is dirt, under construction or fully completed. He is aware of key issues regarding the special districts often involved in public finance transactions such as community improvement districts, transportation development districts, metropolitan districts, public infrastructure districts, cooperative districts and the various iterations of similar special districts from state to state.

Evan understands that each project is much more than the financing backing it, but he is passionate about his part in providing excellent services, homes, entertainment, workplaces and other spaces for people to enjoy. He knows the importance of a project's story and works closely with clients, and all transaction participants, to help tell it.
