“Josh Pasker is one of the most trusted lawyers that I have had the pleasure to work with during my career,” said Tom McFadden, chief financial officer of the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority. “He understands what we are trying to accomplish; is thoughtful in his comments and document drafting; protects SEPTA’s interests at all times; has the highest ethical standards; and is always very responsive. Josh is also a very nice guy, which makes working with him all the more enjoyable.”

Blue Sky Power Chief Executive Officer Benjamin Parvey said, “While diligence, perseverance and attention to detail are the qualities of a great bond lawyer, Josh expands on these with an encyclopedic knowledge of relevant tax and securities laws. In addition, Josh is honest and straightforward and easily earns the trust and respect of his colleagues and clients.”

Josh says he loves the diversity of his job’s challenges and clients. He also said he likes speaking at conferences, on topics from post-issuance compliance to structuring a bond deal.

Along with serving his firm’s clients, Josh helps Saul Ewing through working as a hiring partner.
