Experienced California Trustee’s Counsel
In addition to our work with government agencies and municipalities, The Weist Law Firm provides counsel to banking institutions and corporate trust departments who act as trustees, paying agent, marketing agent, tender agent, dissemination agent and escrow agent in public securities offerings. In this capacity, we undertake due diligence reviews, draft trustee related revisions to documents such as indentures and protect our client’s interests throughout the transaction. We have years of experience with public financing issues, and we use that experience to answer questions, identify potential problems and compliance issues and ensure that each transaction proceeds smoothly.
Representing National Investment Banks
At The Weist Law Firm, our California-based firm has served as counsel to national banks such as Deutsche Bank, US Bank and Bank of New York. We advise our banking clients from inception of the transaction to conclusion, identifying any special issues that need to be covered by the trust agreement or indenture. We ensure that our clients have proper representation when the operational provisions of the indenture are determined.
