Baird's dedicated Federal Lease bankers have designed and executed innovative financing structures to enable developers and owners of mission critical facilities to leverage long-term leases from the federal government into lower costs of capital. The financing structures monetize the essential and long-term enterprise value of the facility beyond the initial lease term.

Our experienced professionals have executed approximately $2 billion of bond issues, the proceeds of which were used to acquire, recapitalize, and develop Level IV secure facilities, outpatient VA surgical centers and multi-specialty group clinics, and other essential facilities that the federal government is expected to occupy for decades. Our professionals have worked with rating agencies and investors to secure the participation of 100 different large investors in the program.
