Butler Snow attorneys Wayne J. Neveu and Sarah P. Tasker have been named as Fellows of the American College of Bond Counsel. Both practice in the firm’s Public Finance, Tax Incentives and Credit Markets group.
The College was formed in 1995 for the purpose of recognizing lawyers who have established reputations among their peers for their skill, experience and high standards of professional and ethical conduct in the practice of bond law. Membership in the College is extremely limited and admission as a Fellow (i.e. member of the College) is a recognition of the lawyer’s accomplishments and legal expertise in the field of bond law. Nominees for membership must have at least ten years of “substantial experience in bond law.”
Neveu has more than 35 years of practice experience in public finance. He frequently serves as bond and special counsel to a range of government entities and public instrumentalities, including the Louisiana Housing Corporation in connection with their issuance of tax-exempt bonds for single and multifamily housing.
Neveu is a member of the National Association of Bond Lawyers and is a founding member of the American Bar Association Forum on Affordable Housing and Community Development Law. He has been recognized by Martindale Hubbell® with an AV-Preeminent Peer Review Rating. Neveu received his bachelor’s degree from Yale University and his Juris Doctor from Columbia University School of Law.
Tasker serves as bond counsel, special counsel, disclosure counsel, underwriter’s counsel and bank counsel in connection with tax-exempt and taxable bond issues. She also specializes in negotiating and drafting economic incentive agreements for municipal entities.
Tasker earned her bachelor’s degree and Juris Doctor from the University of Colorado. She is a member of the American and Colorado Bar Associations, as well as the National Association of Bond Lawyers and Colorado Association of Bond Lawyers.
