Bond Attorney

Bond Attorney

A lawyer hired by a bond issuer to represent the interests of potential bondholders. Before a new issue of a bond, a bond attorney must generally present a legal opinion stating that everything that the issuer says about the bond is true, and that the issuer has adhered to all applicable laws. Issuers hire bond attorneys to reduce the risk to bondholders and therefore to attract more investors.
