Ben McGuire

Ben McGuire was recently appointed chair of the public finance and infrastructure practice in Greenberg Traurig’s Boston office, where he has practiced since graduating law school over fifteen years ago. He leads a team of finance, securities, tax, and real estate professionals in connection with tax-exempt bond financing for infrastructure projects throughout the US.


His Start: Greenberg Traurig’s public finance and infrastructure practice put McGuire at the ideal intersection of the transactional area and his public policy and public law interests.  Climbing the Ladder: “Over time, I built the practice from being a summer associate at GT all the way to chairing the practice here in Boston. It has been a very rewarding, challenging, but fun experience to grow with the firm,” he says. Making History: A major project is his work on the construction of the Brightline passenger railroad, which has been financed primarily with tax-exempt debt. The line from Miami to Orlando is the first privately owned and operated passenger rail system built in the US.
