Public finance attorney Kenneth Lind was made partner at Nixon Peabody LLP, the firm announced Tuesday. Lind has served as bond counsel at the firm’s New York City office since leaving the state Metropolitan Transportation Authority in January 2008, where he had been acting finance director.

Lind, 58, worked on the two most recent deals to receive The Bond Buyer’s Deal of the Year award —  2009’s $963 million Dulles Toll Road revenue bond issue that financed part of an extension of the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority rail system to Dulles Airport; and the Puerto Rico Housing Finance Authority’s $384 million 2008 deal that helped finance a public housing modernization project.
