For the past decade, the financial services sector has been buffeted by a series of geopolitical events, economic downturns, and state regulatory reactions that have reshaped the banking and finance industry. In this era of heightened scrutiny and economic uncertainty, clients need legal counsel with the perspective and knowledge to help them chart a successful course to achieve their business objectives in a complex regulatory environment.
We provide effective legal guidance and strategic planning advice that assist our clients in balancing their business objectives against the need for sound credit and investment policy and compliance with statutes and regulatory oversight.
Client issues in the banking and finance area frequently involve the intersection of multiple areas of law. To provide customized legal solutions, we work regularly with lawyers from the firm’s intellectual property, real estate, environmental law, tax, and other practices. When disputes arise, we draw on the extensive trial and alternative dispute resolution experience of the firm’s litigation team.
