In the past 30 years, we have served as underwriter’s counsel, issuer’s and transaction counsel, bond counsel, special tax counsel, and regulatory counsel in more than 140 transactions involving billions of dollars of student loan asset-backed securities and student loan revenue bonds.
We can help you navigate the complex federal and state laws and regulations affecting the education finance industry. We can advise you on current issues under FFELP as well as private loan programs. We can provide counsel to issuers, lenders, guaranty agencies, and servicers on issues outside of the traditional public finance, tax, and securities law issues encountered in a student loan asset-backed financing, including federal and state law consumer lending and privacy issues, e-signature issues, and intellectual property security, licensing, and patent infringement matters. We also prepare non-purpose arbitrage rebate determinations and education loan excess earnings determinations for student loan issuers of tax-exempt securities.
