October 25, 2012
Wolff & Samson PC is proud to announce that member of the firm Bernard S. Davis, of Roseland, NJ, has been elected a Fellow in the American College of Bond Counsel (the “College”), one of only 11 attorneys to be elected to the College this year.
The College is a national organization formed in 1995 to recognize bond lawyers who have established reputations among their peers for their skill, experience and high standards of professional and ethical conduct. Membership in the College is extremely limited and admission as a Fellow is regarded as a testament to a lawyer’s accomplishments and skill in the area of bond law. According to the College, it believes that “a bond lawyer's expertise can best be judged by his or her peers and has sought to admit to membership in the College only bond lawyers that have long experience and outstanding reputations in the field of municipal bond law.”
Davis, a member of Wolff & Samson’s Public Finance Group, has 30 years of experiencing in public finance. His focus includes: private activity bonds, general obligation bonds, revenue bonds, financing leases, certificates of participation, Securities and Exchange Commission compliance, Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board compliance, public and private joint venture financings, securitizations, redevelopment, corporate trust, and Trust Indenture Act matters.
Previously, Davis was an assistant U.S. attorney for the District of New Jersey and was appointed deputy chief of the Civil Division in 1974. Prior to entering
private practice, he was assistant counsel for First National State Bancorporation, which merged with Wachovia Bank. He began his bond counsel career at the firm of Kraft & Hughes.
After completing his undergraduate work at Fairfield University, Davis received his J.D. from Seton Hall University School of Law. He is admitted to practice in New Jersey, as well as before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit and the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey.
