A bit of, I guess a disclosure, I grew up rurally myself. So I grew up in the high country across the South Island in different places, and I kind of saw first-hand the impact of losing some people that I know to suicide, in rural areas, and seeing the wave effect it has on that society. Because in a rural area, it's a very small net of people. I also did work for a while for Youthline, which is a crisis line, and that kind of sparked my interest into wanting to research suicide. So it wasn't, probably, the easiest task to take, but yeah it was really rewarding.
My practice focuses on structuring, documenting, and closing capital market transactions. Much of my work involves financing and refinancing infrastructure projects, such as capital improvements, water and wastewater facilities, light rail lines, museums, and airports. I also advise issuers, underwriters, municipal advisors, and investors in the fast-evolving landscape of municipal securities regulation and enforcement, including regulatory compliance and primary and secondary market disclosure. Representative clients include the City of Los Angeles, the State of California, the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, the County of Contra Costa, City of San Diego, County of San Diego, The Broad, the J. Paul Getty Trust, the State of New Jersey, and a number of underwriting firms.
I see a few things on the horizon: (i) increased focus on how we can leverage the capital markets to provide funding for social justice projects through the issuance of social bonds; (ii) more forward delivery transactions in order to lock in savings on refunding bonds; and (iii) an increased Securities and Exchange Commission focus on environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) disclosure. 041b061a72
