Foley & Lardner LLP announced today that Dana Lach has returned to the firm’s Health Care Finance, Public Finance and Finance & Financial Institutions Practices in the Milwaukee office.

Lach has extensive experience counseling health care and other nonprofit organizations, including colleges and universities, in tax-exempt and taxable bond transactions, commercial loans, non-traditional financing products such as commercial paper programs and securitizations, and derivative transactions. Lach regularly serves as counsel to investment banks, purchasers and commercial banks in connection with tax-exempt and taxable financing transactions. Lach’s participation as borrower’s or underwriter’s counsel on more than 150 securities transactions has totaled in excess of $20 billion.

“Dana’s deep experience structuring complex securities transactions across many public sectors, particularly the health care industry, will play a key role as we work to sustain and grow our established public finance bench,” said Laura Bilas, chair of Foley’s Public Finance Practice.

Lach has provided guidance to clients on post-issuance compliance, including ongoing tax, covenant and disclosure compliance. She has counseled clients in developing policies and procedures for both tax and primary and secondary market disclosure requirements. Lach also has experience providing guidance on remedial actions for changes in use of bond financed facilities and information reporting for the U.S. Internal Revenue Service Form 990, Schedule K.

“We are thrilled to welcome Dana back to Foley. Her immense knowledge in the health care, nonprofit and municipal financing arenas will contribute vastly to our existing and expanding client base,” said Linda Benfield, managing partner of Foley’s Milwaukee office.
