Two prominent local attorneys, Antonio Martini and Kris Moussette, have joined Hinckley Allen’s Boston office as partners in the firm’s growing Public Finance practice. Both attorneys are joining Hinckley Allen from Locke Lord LLP in Boston.
“Tony and Kris will make excellent additions to our firm,” said David Rubin, managing partner of Hinckley Allen. “Their attributes are reflective of some of the goals in our recently approved strategic plan, including our focus on hiring top of the market firm minded lawyers with an outstanding reputation and a strong record of attracting high quality clients in one of our core practice areas.”
Tony focuses on municipal finance-related federal tax law and has experience in general federal corporate taxation and tax dispute work. Currently serving as President of the National Association of Bond Lawyers, Tony was also recently elected a Fellow of the American College of Bond Counsel and was named a “Rising Star” in the area of Bonds & Government Finance by Massachusetts Super Lawyers. Tony is looking forward to supporting Hinckley Allen’s existing and expanding public finance client base.
“Hinckley Allen is a firm with deep roots in New England and tremendous depth of talent,” said Tony. “I’m excited to be part of the firm’s public finance platform and to help grow the practice regionally and nationally.”
Kris Moussette, who also joins the firm as partner in the Boston office, is involved in all aspects of public finance throughout New England, the East Coast and Chicago, including the structuring and facilitating of a variety of tax-exempt bond transactions. Much of her public finance work focuses on debt issuances to support 501(c)(3) organizations, such as public and private colleges and universities, hospitals, health care systems, secondary schools, cultural institutions such as museums, and other charitable organizations, as well as a variety of governmental issuers.
“I am thrilled to be joining the Hinckley Allen team,” said Kris. “Tony and I will be able to provide continuity and institutional knowledge to our existing clients, while expanding the capabilities of the Public Finance practice firm wide.” Kris is a member of the National Association of Bond Lawyers, the Boston Bar Association and the Boston chapter of Women in Public Finance.
The Hinckley Allen Public Finance practice assists clients in navigating the complex tax-exempt bond financing process. The 16 members of the practice are located throughout the firm’s offices and practice regionally and nationally, serving as bond counsel as well as representing borrowers, investment bankers, commercial banks, bond purchasers and bond trustees.
