She served as Co-Disclosure counsel on a $2.4 billion special facilities bonds issuance supporting a nearly $4 billion public-private partnership for the design, operation and maintenance of an airport terminal.

“Laurie is a welcomed addition to our growing presence here in the Southeast. She brings extensive experience advancing complex public financings, which builds on a center of excellence for our firm. We are excited for her to join us,” said Atlanta Managing Partner Ann-Marie Notaro.

Bob Labes, who is Group Leader of the Public & Infrastructure Finance Practice, commented, “Laurie is an experienced practitioner and her arrival continues our expansion into one of the nation’s fastest growing regions at a time when infrastructure development is at the forefront of our national agenda.”

Ms. Schwartz commented, “Squire Patton Boggs is nationally recognized in public and infrastructure finance and I look forward to contributing to its long tradition of excellence working alongside my new colleagues.”
