Atlanta Spotlight

Holland & Knight senior counsel Allison Dyer was named among The Daily Report’s “40 Under Forty” legal rising stars to watch. The winners were profiled in the newspaper’s Sept. 16th issue.

Ms. Dyer arrived in the firm’s Atlanta office a little over a year ago, but has made a big impact in a short amount of time. She and her law partner, Woody Vaughan, head the Georgia Public Finance Initiative at Holland & Knight, which is currently ranked the #1 bond counsel firm in Georgia, according to The Bond Buyer. During the first six months of 2015, the team helped clients issue $1.6 billion in bonds, financing high-profile projects around the state.

“I love the local angle of the work we do,” Ms. Dyer told the newspaper. “The cool thing about bond work is it touches a lot of industries. We’ve got hospital clients, banks, local school districts, universities, water and sewer deals, multifamily housing.”

Some of her notable recent projects include:

• Representing Corvias Group and its student housing division in connection with the company’s recent award as private concessionaire for a $550 million project to develop/manage student housing for nine campuses within the University System of Georgia.

• Advising the State of Georgia on a $1.2 billion bond offering completed in June 2015.

• Serving as bond counsel to Gwinnett County School District on a $250 million tax-exempt financing.

• Serving as bond counsel to MARTA on the sale of over $500 million in tax-exempt debt.

Ms. Dyer has been a member of the National Association of Bond Lawyers since 2006 and has served as a panellist for the past two years on its Undewriters’ Counsel panel along with  in-house counsel from major financial institutions, the SEC and the IRS.
