Chris Brewer leads Dinsmore & Shohl's Public Finance Practice Group within the firm's Corporate Department. Chris concentrates his practice in Public Finance, and has done so since his graduation from law school, a soon-to-be thirty year career in municipal bonds. Chris' clients comprise an extensive range of state and local governments, non-profit institutions and private corporations which qualify for tax-exempt financing, together with investment, commercial and trustee banks. In addition to the traditional lead role of Bond Counsel, Chris has served as Underwriter's, Trustee's and Special Tax Counsel on thousands of transactions involving billions of dollars of tax-exempt municipal debt in many states, including Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Kentucky, New Jersey, Delaware and New York. Those transactions cover a broad spectrum from classic, fixed rate, general obligation bonds financing traditional governmental projects to creative, variable rate, special revenue debt financing private economic development projects. In addition, these transactions include a number of "firsts" - for off balance sheet dormitories, for intermediate unit office buildings and for refundings of expired assets.
