Experience

  • Anne has participated in more than 200 tax-exempt and taxable financings. She was the author of the 2008 request to the SEC that resulted in a no action letter permitting tax-exempt borrowers to bid in their own auctions for auction rates securities, thereby providing an exit mechanism for clients caught in the collapse of the auction market. She is particularly familiar with the challenges facing non-profit institutions in financial distress.  
  • Anne has also led many corporate affiliations, divestitures, and restructurings of health care systems, including affiliations between community hospitals; affiliations among academic medical centers and community hospitals; and affiliations and disaffiliations involving multiple academic medical centers and health care systems.
