Alex serves as underwriter's counsel and placement agent's counsel to national and regional broker-dealers across the country in a wide variety of municipal and conduit financings. Alex also assists his broker-dealer clients with a variety of regulatory compliance matters, including compliance with Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board rules, review of supervisory procedures and assistance on regulatory reviews.

Alex also serves as disclosure counsel to municipal issuers in Wisconsin and several other states. Alex assists his municipal issuer clients in understanding their responsibilities with respect to primary disclosure and continuing disclosure.

In his capacity as underwriter's counsel and disclosure counsel, Alex coordinates his team's due diligence review process and offering document review and preparation.

A two-time Badger, Alex bleeds the Cardinal and White and never misses a Badgers hoops or football game. In his free time, Alex enjoys traveling, working out, discovering new music, poker and, most importantly, spending time with family and friends.
