Miles & Stockbridge, a leading business law firm in the mid-Atlantic region, announced today that Fabian D. Walters, Jr. has joined its public finance practice as a principal in its Baltimore office.
Walters has experience in all aspects of public finance law. He serves as bond counsel and counsel to underwriters and issuers in connection with fixed and variable rate bonds, tax increment and special taxing district bonds, bonds supported by letters of credit and bond insurance, public issues, private placements, bank-qualified bonds, and taxable bonds financings. He also advises issuers on securities laws and disclosure obligations related to public offerings.
“Fabian’s broad background in municipal bond transactions, and his strong understanding of disclosure standards, will be a valuable asset to our clients,” said Nancy Greene, chairman of Miles & Stockbridge. “We’re proud to have him among a new generation of practitioners at our firm, which has been at the forefront of public finance in the mid-Atlantic region for more than 40 years.”

In addition to his public finance practice, Walters represents clients in corporate matters, including debt financing, negotiation and drafting of shareholder agreements, and equipment purchases and leasing.
