Procopio welcomes Edsell “Chip” Eady, Jr. in the role as Of Counsel to its public agencies and charter schools team. A well-established bond finance attorney from the Bay Area, Eady’s experience provides Procopio’s nonprofit and public sector clients with public financing alternatives and guidance on publicly-funded projects from start to finish.

Eady has served as lead counsel in hundreds of municipal bond issues raising tens of billions of dollars over the past 30 years. For example, Eady advises the City of Cupertino on the iconic Apple Campus 2 project regarding tax and public infrastructure issues, among others. He pioneered the conduit financing of nonprofit church-affiliated schools in California, and he has helped in the financing of over 45,000 affordable rental housing units and guided municipal water, wastewater, electric and telecommunications utilities through successful revenue bond issues (including renewable energy resources such as wind and hydroelectric power), and assisted with massive infrastructure development both in assessment bond issues and in a broad range of special tax community facilities districts. His experience includes investigation and resolution of securities disclosure and related tax matters, the establishment of a tax-exempt OPEB trust with a favorable IRS private letter ruling, and assistance with responses to official and public records requests. As part of Procopio’s public agencies and charter schools practice group, he joins over a dozen knowledgeable and skilled attorneys who regularly advise public and private clients on laws regulating public and quasi-public political subdivisions.

“As one of the preeminent firms serving the public agency, nonprofit and charter schools communities, we pride ourselves on the recent work we have done throughout California,” said the firm’s managing partner Tom Turner. “We are excited that Chip, one of the best in this field of law, has joined the San Diego team and we know his addition will enhance the work our colleagues, and address the needs of our clients, across the region.”

“Our public agency and charter school attorneys are far-reaching in their capacity to provide strategic guidance to clients across a diverse number of issues, including infrastructure and facilities financing and development, governance, public transparency and conflict of interest laws, employment and many other matters,” said Greg Moser, public agencies and charter schools practice group leader. “Chip’s background and expertise will help us continue to propel this group toward national preeminence in the full range of financing, disclosure and related services that Procopio clients demand and expect.”
