Law Firm names top P3 attorney partner

Nixon Peabody has named Vincent Casey a partner to expand its infrastructure practice.

Nixon Peabody has named a new partner in its latest effort to expand its project finance and public-private partnership (PPP; P3) practice.

Vincent Casey, who will be based in the US law firm’s New York office, will be in charge of advising clients on transportation, energy and other infrastructure project financings, as well as on other complex bond and bank financial transactions.

These include representing sponsors and lenders in the development, construction and financing of infrastructure projects, including P3s involving bank lending, tax-exempt bonds, TIFIA loans, the sale of deferred payment certificates and swaps.

“Vincent’s national reputation, varied and deep P3 experience and strong relationships with lenders, sponsors, financial advisors, and others in the industry will enhance our capacity in project finance and broaden our capabilities in delivering innovate financing solutions to fund infrastructure projects,” said Virginia Wong, partner and one of the leaders of the firm’s infrastructure finance team, said in a statement. 

Casey has been involved in a number of major P3 projects before, including the Presidio Parkway and Denver FasTracker P3s as well as bids for the recent I-4 Ultimate Project, SH183, Denver North and 460 projects. He also has substantial experience in other types of project financings, with both bank and bond financing solutions.

Casey was mostly recently with San Francisco-headquartered law firm Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe, and was previously a partner at New York-based Shearman & Sterling.
