Schiff Gains Two Powerful Lawyers in New York
Schiff Hardin LLP celebrated today the arrival of Alphonso E. Tindall, Jr. and Deborah Hartmann Henry – "Al and Debby" – from Squire Patton Boggs. They have joined Schiff's New York office.
"We are excited to welcome Al and Debby to the firm," said Bruce Weisenthal, head of the firm's Public Finance group. "Al brings a perspective commensurate with many years of in-depth experience counseling state and local governments, and developing and implementing various financial programs. Debby is a versatile public finance practitioner with experience drafting legislation at the state level, capabilities that will undoubtedly benefit our clients as they navigate state and local government financing challenges."
Al's staunch 25 years in the industry have faced him with state authority issues, empowering him to handle local municipalities' state programs. He's gained his grace handling state and local governments and public authorities nationwide.
Debby has counseled for bond, borrower, and underwriters, mastering finances across the country. She's worked with water and sewer projects, airports, colleges and universities, stadiums, transportation, and public power. She's drafted primary documents, purchase contracts, escrow agreements, indentures, and bond resolutions.
"Given their vast experience, Al and Debby will be key contributors to the continued development of our Public Finance group and to strengthening relationships with state and local governments," said Marci A. Eisenstein, the firm's Managing Partner.
Bringing the wealth of work and expertise they've gained at Squire and elsewhere, the pair are proud to join the Schiff team:
"We are thrilled to join Schiff's Public Finance practice, which has the talent and resources to serve state governments and local municipalities across a variety of industries," Al explained. "The firm has a depth of experiences in public law and finance transactions and we look forward to helping Schiff continue to build out its practice."
With the support of the duo, Schiff continues to strengthen their New York base.
