Schmid Rejoins Nossaman's Infrastructure Practice
Nossaman Partner Ann-Therese Schmid was featured in the Railway Age article, "Schmid Rejoins Nossaman's Infrastructure Practice," regarding her return to the Firm. She was previously a member of Nossaman's Infrastructure practice in Austin, Texas from 2005 through 2006.
"Ann-Therese Schmid possesses national expertise in a number of innovative project delivery methods, including design-build, construction management at risk, privatization, and integrated project delivery," said Nossaman Infrastructure Practice Group Chair Patrick Harder. "She is also well versed in federal policy and federal regulatory compliance and FTA procurements, particularly the Buy America and New Starts programs for surface transportation infrastructure projects. Adding to our considerable East Coast strength and capacity, she will help further enhance the firm's infrastructure depth and breadth in a variety of ways."
The article noted that Ms. Schmid previously served as passenger rail chief of staff for the Minnesota Department of Transportation, advised public-sector clients on public procurements for a global engineering and design firm, and has represented public-sector and private-sector infrastructure clients in transactional and regulatory matters.
"Ann-Therese's multi-layered transportation policy knowledge and extensive experience in select federal programs adds a compelling dimension to her outstanding legal knowledge," noted Mr. Harder. "She has represented transportation clients in bid and procurement transactions and disputes, and she understands the technical aspects of infrastructure as well."
"I returned to Nossaman because of its demonstrated strengths and abilities in innovative public-private partnerships and project delivery processes," said Ms. Schmid. "I also look forward to utilizing my regulatory compliance experience for infrastructure projects in surface transportation and lending my knowledge on water/wastewater and other disciplines where my skills can best benefit the firm and its clients."
