Winstead Names Michelle Rieger, Jeff Nydegger to Lead P3, Infrastructure & Project Finance Industry Group


DALLAS Sept. 19 2017  Winstead has named Michelle Rieger and Jeff Nydegger as co-chairs of the firm’s P3 (public-private partnerships), Infrastructure & Project Finance Industry Group. The Industry Group has extensive experience representing public agencies and private entities, developers and underwriters in major infrastructure development projects both in Texas and across the country.

“Infrastructure development in the United States is expected to grow significantly over the next decade, while state and local government spending on infrastructure is at its lowest point 60 years,” notes group co-chair Jeff Nydegger. “This increases the demand for innovative financing solutions and participation from both public and private sectors. There are no longer any ‘off-the-shelf’ financing structures for these complex projects.”

Winstead’s experience in project finance, development and construction spans a broad array of both taxable and tax-exempt projects, including airport facilities, toll roads, municipal convention centers and hotels, higher education facilities, and professional sports stadiums, to name a few.

“Innovation and creativity are important elements in the process,” says  group co-chair Michelle Rieger. “Winstead's multidisciplinary infrastructure group has grown to encompass every aspect of the planning, financing and development of P3s at a level of sophistication not typically found in other Texas firms with procurement or public finance experience.
