College Park city attorney hires prominent lawyer

Serena L. Nowell has joined the law firm of Fincher Denmark, College Park’s longtime city attorney.

As senior counsel, Nowell’s areas of responsibility include public finance; complex real estate transactions; negotiating, reviewing and executing contracts; and serving as outside general counsel for government and institutional clients.

“We are excited to add Serena to our already very talented collection of lawyers, as she brings more than 25 years of high-level experience laser-focused to the needs of our clients,” Senior Partner Steven Fincher said in a statement. “She is a great addition to our team of highly qualified local government attorneys.”

Prior to joining the firm, Nowell operated a boutique local government and public finance law firm for almost a decade.

Previously, she held the position of deputy city attorney for the city of Atlanta.

In those capacities, Nowell served as bond counsel, disclosure counsel, underwriter’s counsel and issuer’s counsel in a variety of municipal finance transactions valued at more than $5.5 billion.

Nowell earned her law degree from Howard University in Washington, D.C.

She is a member of several professional organizations, including the State Bar of Georgia, American Bar Association and the National Association of Bond Lawyers.
