Ballard Spahr hires top public finance duo in DC
Ballard Spahr has boosted its Washington DC public finance practice with the hire of Pauline A. Schneider and Tatjana Misulic from Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe.
“Pauline and Tatjana are an excellent fit for our public finance practice. They have significant experience representing local governments, particularly in the growing Northern Virginia counties,” said Joseph A. Fanone, Managing Partner of the firm’s Washington, DC, office. “Pauline is a trailblazer in public finance and Tatjana is a rising star. Together, they will make our already formidable public finance presence in the District even stronger.”
Schneider and Misulic focus on transactional matters, including the representation of state and local governments, borrowers, underwriters, investment bankers, and credit enhancement providers on an exceptionally wide range of complex general obligation and revenue bond financings.
William C. Rhodes, Chair of Ballard Spahr’s Public Finance Department, said: “Ballard is fortunate to have successfully recruited such talented, experienced public finance lawyers. That has not happened by accident. Our Department is staffed by a wonderful mix of senior attorneys and experienced younger attorneys who have spent their careers focused on the municipal finance industry. The addition of Pauline and Tatjana adds a winning combination to our Department, and the D.C. office, and dovetails with our culture as well as our strengths as a firm".
