Our attorneys focus on financial institutions on a daily basis and work to know your business, management team, competitors, market, regulators, customers, employees, and community. With our industry-specific focus and our years in the field, we are known and respected by banks, outside counsel at other firms and regulators across the country.

Our team focuses on acquisitions and sales, as well as corporate governance, regulatory, compliance and securities matters for more than 300 financial institution clients. In addition, we have a large number of attorneys in our firm who regularly provide litigation, lending, work-out, bankruptcy, employment law, employee benefits, fintech investment, emerging payments and prepaid cards, environmental, intellectual property, tax, technology and outsourcing, fiduciary law (including personal estate planning for bankers), real estate and REITs, white collar crime and similar legal advice for our financial institution clients. We enjoy being able to say that whatever problem a banker may have, we have a lawyer who has worked on a similar problem for a banker.
