Dilworth Paxson LLP is pleased to announce that Marc A. Feller, Partner and Chair of the Firm’s Public Finance Group, was elected by unanimous vote to become a Fellow of the American College of Bond Counsel. Feller is one of only 18 attorneys—and the only attorney from Pennsylvania—elected from across the country this year.
The American College of Bond Counsel was created in 1995 to recognize lawyers distinguished for their skill, experience, and high standards of professional and ethical conduct in the practice of bond law. Among its objectives, the College seeks to provide authoritative educational materials in the field of bond law; to speak upon matters of interest and importance to bond law and practice before legislative, administrative, and regulatory bodies; and to cooperate and consult with national, state, and local bar organizations, government agencies, issuer organizations, and other groups which have an interest in bond law and practice, including the National Association of Bond Lawyers.
This is the second time in less than a year that a Dilworth attorney has been admitted as a Fellow to a prestigious legal membership organization. In late 2013, Dilworth Chairman Lawrence G. McMichael was inducted into the American College of Trial Lawyers. This made McMichael one of only a handful of attorneys in the U.S. to be a Fellow of both the American College of Trial Lawyers and the American College of Bankruptcy.
As a Partner at Dilworth and Chair of the Firm’s Public Finance Group, Feller focuses on all aspects of public finance transactions and municipal representation. His experience includes transportation and infrastructure financing (including P3s and asset monetizations), hospital and other health care and 501(c)(3) financings, economic development projects, solid waste and general obligation bonds, and distressed municipalities. His clients typically include governmental entities and other bond issuers, underwriters, nonprofit and business entities, trustees, and counterparties.
Founded in Philadelphia in 1933, Dilworth Paxson LLP has a rich and impressive history filled with landmark work that has sparked growth and progress in American business. Dilworth’s commitment to diversity, and its aggressive recruitment of the best and the brightest from government, community, and industry, have driven and will continue to drive the success of the Firm and its clients.
