Law firm Jones Walker LLP recently announced the opening of a Cincinnati office. The business- focused law firm has offices in Alabama; Arizona; California; Washington, D.C.; Florida; Georgia; Louisiana; Mississippi; New York; and Texas, and their Cincinnati branch will be their first branch in the Midwestern United States. The new office is anchored by John Peck, and will specialize in public finance and housing law.

Peck is the son of Judge John W. Peck, the namesake of Cincinnati’s federal building. The junior Peck has more than 40 years of experience working on affordable housing finance law across the United States. Peck helped to write early regulations for the Section 8 government-subsidized housing program.


“Expanding our public finance and housing practice is part of our dynamic growth strategy,” said William Hines, one of Jones Walker’s managing partners. “We already have a great relationship with John and his team. Our lawyers have worked on a number of deals together in the past and share some significant clients.”

Joining Peck at the Cincinnati office will be partners Alysse Hollis and Ronald Bell, along with Robert Bruns as special counsel. Hollis’ practice focuses on the structuring and documentation of housing finance transactions, and Bell focuses on finance and tax transactions. Bruns has served as bond counsel, underwriter’s counsel and disclosure counsel on a variety of multifamily housing bond financings.

“This team has an impressive track record in financing and tax issues of affordable/multi-family housing and John Peck is one of the well-respected practitioners in affordable housing finance in America,” said Jones Walker’s New York office head and housing industry team chair, The Hon. Rick Lazio, former U.S. Representative from New York.  “Their efforts will immediately add tremendous value to the firm’s strong presence and reputation in housing development and finance.”
