Austin Partner Carey Troell was featured by Texas Lawyer in a Q&A highlighting his arrival to the Firm, his background in both the public sector and private practice and Locke Lord’s strong public finance capabilities in Texas and nationally.
Troell, a highly experienced bond counsel attorney, said of his background in the public sector: “I started my practice working for the public finance division of the Office of the Texas Attorney General, which provided me a great background in the nuances of the Texas Constitution and state laws governing the issuance of public debt by a political subdivision.” After entering private practice, Troell said he has spent his career serving clients throughout the state in the role of bond counsel, underwriters’ counsel, trustee’s counsel, bank counsel, disclosure counsel and special counsel in public finance matters.
When speaking on why he joined Locke Lord, Troell shared three elements that enable him to grow his practice and provide first-class service to his clients: “First, Locke Lord is a well-respected Texas-based law firm with the core practices that will assist me in providing the best legal representation to my clients. Second, the firm has provided me an opportunity to expand my client base with its deep relationships and contacts throughout the state of Texas. Third, Locke Lord has a renowned national public finance practice, and the core group I am joining in Texas is comprised of great lawyers who work in an atmosphere of collaboration and teamwork.”
Troell’s plans at Locke Lord include continuing his broad-based public finance practice. He continued, “My primary focus will be on cities, counties and school districts, but I pride my practice on the ability to do various sophisticated debt structures, so I look forward to working on a variety of Texas public finance transactions.”
