Dallas, Texas, UNITED STATES


Dallas, Sept. 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Winstead PC has named shareholder Michelle Rieger and associate Jeff Nydegger as co practice leaders for the firm’s industry-focused practice dedicated to public-private partnerships (P3s), infrastructure and project finance. Winstead’s P3, Infrastructure & Project Finance Industry Group has extensive experience representing public agencies and private entities, developers and underwriters in major infrastructure development projects both in Texas and across the country.

“The United States anticipates a $3.3 trillion increase in infrastructure development over the next decade while state and local government spending on infrastructure is at its lowest point 60 years,” notes shareholder and group co-chair Michelle Rieger. “This increases the demand for innovative financing solutions and participation from both public and private sectors. There are no longer any ‘off-the-shelf’ structures for these complex projects.”

Winstead’s experience in this area spans a broad array of both taxable and tax-exempt projects, including: airports and airport facilities; toll road facilities; municipal convention centers and hotels; university facilities and student housing; stadiums and professional sports facilities; industrial development projects; water infrastructure and utilities; municipal facilities; economic redevelopment projects; privatized toll roads; GSA build to suit lease facilities and privatized military housing.

“Innovation and creativity are important elements in the process,” says associate and group co-chair Jeff Nydegger. “Winstead's multidisciplinary project finance group has grown to encompass every aspect of the planning, financing and development of P3s at a level of sophistication not typically found in other Texas firms with procurement or public finance experience.

Winstead PC is a national business law firm with more than 325 attorneys. The firm provides a full range of business legal services to some of the most recognized and respected companies across the country and throughout the world. Winstead has offices in Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, San Antonio and The Woodlands, Texas and Charlotte, North Carolina. For detailed information about Winstead, visit winstead.com
