Drew is a member of Winstead's Public Finance Practice Group. Drew’s practice focuses on the use of special districts (public improvement districts, tax increment reinvestment zones, municipal utility districts, municipal management districts and the like) and development incentives (380 Agreements) as tools for the development of master planned residential and mixed use communities.  She has experience representing issuers, underwriters, and developers in municipal bond and economic development transactions for governmental capital projects, residential real estate development, utility projects, education projects and healthcare projects. 

Drew’s experience ranges from traditional general obligation bonds to development bonds, with a particular emphasis on complex special high-yield revenue monetization tools.  She frequently represents underwriters in municipal bond public offerings, and counsels on securities law disclosure issues, and MSRB and SEC rules. 

Drew also has experience negotiating and implementing economic development incentive packages with state and local governments for companies that are relocating or expanding.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
