Arntson Stewart Wegner PC provides legal services through offices in Fargo and Bismarck, North Dakota. Our practice is focused on public finance, governmental law and HUD financed projects. Our mission is to provide high quality legal services in a timely manner. Because of our highly trained, highly skilled and dedicated staff, we meet or exceed our clients’ expectations. We take pride in the documents we produce and the services we provide our clients.
We are nationally recognized bond lawyers providing expert and objective legal opinions with respect to the validity of bonds, the tax-exempt status of bonds, and other subjects the opinion addresses. In addition, we counsel school districts and other North Dakota political subdivisions and we serve as closing attorneys for HUD financed multifamily housing projects.
Each practice area requires specialized knowledge. Municipal bonds are highly regulated by state law, the Internal Revenue Code and securities regulations. HUD financed multifamily housing projects are regulated by federal statutes, federal regulations and HUD policies and procedures. Advising political subdivisions requires an understanding of state statutes, open meetings and records laws and, for school districts, federal laws regulating education, such as the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act.
