Tenley Drescher-Rhoades Rejoins Faegre Baker Daniels in Corporate Practice

Tenley Drescher-Rhoades has rejoined Faegre Baker Daniels LLP as counsel in the corporate practice, focusing on public finance. She will practice from the law firm's 96th Street office.

As an associate with the firm from 2000-04 and 2007-10, Drescher-Rhoades practiced in municipal finance, economic development and employee benefits. She served as bond counsel and advised public and private entities on economic development, redevelopment, procurement, consolidation and collaboration. In 2009, Indiana Super Lawyers named Drescher-Rhoades as a "Rising Star" in bonds and government finance.

Before rejoining Faegre Baker Daniels, Drescher-Rhoades worked with the Marion County Election Board — first as director of elections, then as outside general counsel. She oversaw elections in Indiana's largest county with more than 600,000 registered voters and more than 300 voting locations. Previously, she served as Deputy Corporation Counsel for the City of Indianapolis under Mayor Bart Peterson. Drescher-Rhoades managed the city's legal department, counseled the Office of the Mayor, participated in several major policy initiatives and developed an expertise in election and redevelopment law.

Drescher-Rhoades graduated cum laude from the Indiana University Maurer School of Law in Bloomington in 2000 after earning a bachelor's degree in political science and French cum laude from Butler University.
