Katherine Thursby has joined Fox Rothschild as a partner in San Francisco and Los Angeles, adding depth to the national law firm’s public finance bench.
Thursby, a board member for the Women in Public Finance’s northern California chapter, increases the firm’s public finance practice to 16 attorneys nationwide, three of which are located in California.
“Katherine is an outstanding addition to our growing team in California,” said Alexander Hernaez, the managing partner of Fox’s San Francisco office, in a statement. “Her strong background in municipal bonds and project finance and refunding matters, including work with nearly all forms of publicly offered municipal debt, is a tremendous asset for our clients.”
During the past five years, Thursby has worked on more than 65 offerings totaling more than $1.62 billion in debt sold by California issuers, according to the firm.
She has worked as bond and disclosure counsel for California cities, counties, water districts, special districts, transportation authorities, joint powers authorities, school districts, community college districts and a variety of public agencies.
She is a member of the National Association of Bond Lawyers and the San Francisco Bar Association. She also volunteers with the Junior League of San Francisco where she most recently served as chair of the Institute on Aging Committee.
She earned her J.D. from the University of California, Hastings College of Law and her B.A., with honors, from Columbia University. Before launching her legal career, she worked for Morgan Stanley.
