Experience

Mallary focuses her practice on public finance, with a particular focus on financing projects involving governments (including counties and housing authorities) and not-for-profits (including schools, colleges, senior living centers and hospitals). She works closely with clients to understand their financing needs and to develop a plan to best meet those needs. She also works closely with banks, underwriters and other counsel to ensure a successful closing for every transaction. 

Ms. Lerner monitors the bond marketplace and has a strong understanding of the ever-changing financial rules and standards for banks, underwriters and other issuers, as well as the rules that impact governments, not-for-profits and other borrowers.

Prior to joining Windels Marx, Ms. Lerner practiced public finance with a prominent national law firm. Prior to that, she clerked for a Denver District Court judge.
