We help our clients build the infrastructure that provides the services needed for successful communities.

From the construction and expansion of water and sewer systems to the funding of schools, courthouses and airports, Gray Pannell & Woodward LLP is an experienced partner providing clients with the highest level of technical skill and industry insight.

As one of the Georgia’s preeminent law firms in state and municipal finance, GPW provides clients with pragmatic and creative solutions in a rapidly changing financial marketplace. As the economy changes, so do we.

Our roster of clients speaks volumes: we have acted as bond counsel on issues which enabled the Georgia Ports Authority in its expansion of their Savannah and Brunswick facilities and transformed the Macon Coliseum and Centreplex into the largest entertainment and convention center outside of metro Atlanta. We have secured over $6.9 billion as bond counsel to the State of Georgia. Our work has helped promote Georgia’s economic growth, welcoming industry juggernauts to Georgia like SK Battery, a Korean developer and manufacturer of lithium-ion batteries for electric vehicles as counsel to Jackson County Industrial Development Authority. We work closely with the Fulton County Development Authority to address the growing needs of the metro Atlanta area. We worked with the Hospital Authority of Wayne County to construct a state-of-the-art healthcare facility. We help create public financing structures that provide funding for projects like a new courthouse in Toombs County and additional education facilities in Laurens County. While interest rates have been historically low, we’ve provided our clients with refinancing deals that have resulted in incredible savings.

No project is too big or too small, our lawyers provide a depth of industry knowledge to the city managers of rural Georgia and the CEOs of Fortune 500 companies. We understand the key issues driving deals and are able to avoid unnecessary delays that result in a loss of opportunity. We ensure the deal is closed successfully and efficiently, no matter how complex.

GPW is committed to providing our clients with the best in public finance law.
