Biography

Jamey L. Tesler assists clients with a wide array of issues before state and local governments, including administrative, regulatory, licensing, procurement, constitutional and litigation matters. He also concentrates on infrastructure, transportation finance, public-private partnerships and other public finance matters.

Jamey has more than 12 years of experience in high-ranking legal and policy-making positions in Massachusetts state government, representing several state-wide elected officials and serving in leadership roles in large, complex state agencies and authorities. His diverse, deep and bipartisan experience encompasses the state budget process, procurement, pension policy, public finance, infrastructure funding, economic development, project management, licensing and permitting.

Immediately prior to joining the firm, Jamey served as General Counsel to the Massachusetts State Treasurer where he managed all legal operations involving the Massachusetts Treasury and its agencies and served as the primary legal advisor to State Treasurer in his role as Chairperson of the Massachusetts Lottery, the State Board of Retirement, the Pension Reserves Investment Management Board, the Water Pollution Abatement Trust and the Massachusetts School Building Authority. At the Treasury, Jamey helped lead a procurement reform initiative, resulting in dozens of competitive bids for banking, finance, legal, audit, and other critical services, and managed all legal work associated with Treasury's participation in the municipal debt market.

Prior to his time at the Treasury, Jamey held several major roles at the Massachusetts Department of Transportation and the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, gaining experience in infrastructure, public-private partnerships, real estate and construction matters. Jamey served as the top legal and policy adviser to the Massachusetts Secretary of Transportation during the enactment of the historic 2009 transportation reform law, which consolidated five transportation agencies and authorities into one transportation organization. Jamey also led the negotiating and due diligence teams for a landmark transaction between Massachusetts and one of the largest railroads in North America through the first stage closing, ultimately resulting in the Commonwealth's acquisition of four rail lines. Jamey has also served as Deputy Legal Counsel to two Governors of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, where he advised and represented the Governor, Lieutenant Governor and Administration on constitutional, statutory, administrative and regulatory law related to economic development, consumer affairs, energy, administration and finance, environment, labor and workforce development, and housing.

Prior to working for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Jamey was a litigator in a private practice and represented clients in sophisticated commercial litigation, including intellectual property, securities, and employment law matters.
