Rafshoon represents clients involved in mergers and acquisitions and other corporate matters and focuses on infrastructure projects.
“Scott brings experience with innovative infrastructure privatization and significant M&A work,” said Thomas Hiner, co-head of the firm’s corporate team. “His practice is a great complement to our PPP (public-private partnerships) practice and to our corporate finance team, which regularly handle complex national transactions.”
Rafshoon was a partner with Dentons, where he was a leader of the infrastructure and PPP practice. He worked with the privatization and redevelopment of military housing facilities at more than 50 bases nationwide. He negotiated with the Army, Navy and Air Force, construction, engineering and design firms, and private sources of capital to close complex public-private transactions.
He also has advised clients on projects related to financing university student housing and other higher-education infrastructure projects. He was with McKenna Long & Aldridge before its 2015 merger with Dentons.
Rafshoon is an adjunct professor at Emory University School of Law, where he teaches contract drafting and deal skills.
Before his legal career, Rafshoon was a magazine and newspaper reporter and editor focusing on government and politics. A graduate of Dartmouth College, he received his law degree from Emory. The Atlanta native is a member of the board of Conexx: America Israel Business Connector.
