Nancy Hagquist Returns to Winstead’s Public Finance Practice Group


AUSTIN, Oct. 10, 2017, — Public finance veteran Nancy Hagquist has rejoined Winstead in the firm’s Public Finance Practice Group as Of Counsel in the Austin office.

While at the State Treasury she served as the State Treasurer's representative on the Texas Bond Review Board and as a member of the Texas Comptroller's first Performance Review team. More recently she worked for the Texas Department of Transportation as an associate general counsel specializing in debt issuance, investment matters, and the State Infrastructure Bank loan program.

“We are pleased to have Nancy back with us. She brings extensive, sophisticated experience with government entities, lenders, and other transaction participants we work with every day,” said David Dawson, Winstead CEO. “Our Public Finance clients will benefit greatly from her insight and practical knowledge in this area.”
