  • Understanding the Underwriting Process

Whether it is in connection with negotiating an issue price certificate, drafting a bond  purchase contract, fielding requests from co-managers regarding due diligence or official statement delivery or making sense of disclosure in underwriting sections of official statements, it is helpful for bond lawyers to understand how the underwriting process works in a primary offering. This workshop will feature an underwriter and a financial advisor and provide a “behind the scenes” look at what they do and why. The session will focus solely on public offerings, sold both on a competitive or negotiated basis. The role of underwriter’s counsel and bond counsel will be covered in other sessions.
