Nixon Peabody, a global law firm with more than 600 attorneys collaborating across major practice areas in cities across the U.S., Europe and Asia, has expanded its project finance and public-private partnership (P3) practice with the arrival of new partner Vincent Casey.
Vincent has led the financing on a large number of the landmark P3 transactions, including Presidio Parkway and Denver FasTracks P3, together in connection with many bids including the recent I-4 Ultimate Project, SH 183, Denver North Metro and 460 projects, and has worked with virtually all of the key players in the P3 area, including sponsors, lenders, underwriters and TIFIA. Vincent also has substantial experience in other types of project financings, with both bank and bond financing solutions. He will be based in Nixon Peabody's New York City office.
Virginia Wong, partner and one of the leaders of our Infrastructure Finance team, said:
"Given the increased use of P3 structures to finance infrastructure projects, we have been actively seeking to increase the breadth and depth of our P3 practice. 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. Vincent will be a tremendous asset to our clients."
Vincent advises clients in transportation, energy and other infrastructure project financings, as well as in 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.

He earned his J.D. from Tulane University Law School, cum laude, (1990), where he was the articles editor of theTulane Law Review. He earned his B.A. from Columbia University.
