Notable Women in Law: Lynda Templen

Class of 2022

Lynda Templen, senior counsel at Husch Blackwell LLP’s Milwaukee office, focuses her legal practice on public finance. Known affectionately as “The Bond Queen of Wisconsin,” she’s led a 30-year legal career in handling bond issuances for public and private clients, according to chief executive officer Paul Eberle. 

Templen specializes in assisting growing companies in identifying and securing local and state incentives that can help bridge the “equity gap.”

She served as bond counsel on behalf of Bug Tussel Wireless in a collaborative broadband project designed to help narrow the digital divide in Wisconsin. As part of the project, Bug Tussel is issuing taxable bonds in three tranches, where six to eight counties, pursuant to an intergovernmental agreement, agree that a single county will be the conduit issuer and each of the other counties will be a participating county. 

In addition, Templen is the firm’s lead attorney for numerous general obligation bond issues, as well as municipal and school district bond counsel engagements.
