Since his time as Receiver of the City of Harrisburg, David Unkovic has worked with Pennsylvania State Senators explaining the capital city’s financial dilemma, testified during the Senate Local Government Committee hearing on the matters, presented his white paper “Municipal Fiscal Distress: Causes and Solution” at the The Bond Buyer’s Second Annual Symposium on Distressed Municipalities in Rhode Island, and spoken to a variety of groups on topics of his experience and expertise.
Now he is joining the law firm of McNees Wallace & Nurick LLC to practice in its Financial Services and Public Finance Group at its Lancaster office.
Unkovic resigned from his position as the Receiver on March 30, 2012, a move that not only put him in the national spotlight, but also the City of Harrisburg.
Before being the first-ever municipal receiver in Pennsylvania, Unkovic was Chief Counsel of the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED). He had previously worked as a bond attorney at Saul Ewing, LLP for 27 years before leaving to be a managing director and chief compliance officer of PFM Asset Management LLC. From 2008 until taking the job with DCED in 2011, he practiced at Cozen O’Connor where he specialized in Public & Project Finance and Capital Markets. Unkovic is a graduate of Harvard Law School.
