Warren S. Bloom is Co-Chair of the Public Finance Practice and began his legal career with Kaye Scholer in New York City in the mid-1980s concentrating on the representation of lending institutions in leveraged buyouts and "going private" transactions. Upon his relocation to Florida in late 1988, Warren began to focus his practice on public finance and the representation of creditor entities in such transactions (e.g., indenture trustees, bondholders, bond purchasers and credit enhancers). Since that time, Warren represents municipal security credit holders and indenture trustees in both new and existing distressed transactions in more than half of the United States.
Warren's experience includes active roles in bankruptcies, foreclosures and consensual restructurings of municipal transactions both in Florida and throughout the nation. During the "Great Recession," Warren worked on over $1 billion of land-based municipal securities restructurings. His practice continues to include a substantial amount of underwriters' counsel, bond counsel, purchaser's counsel and credit enhancers' counsel roles on new transactions.
Within the last decade, Warren has worked on a number of notable energy and medical project finance financings.
- Municipal securities
- Project finance
- Workout transactions
