Banking & Financial Institutions

Industry Overview

The pace of change in finance continues to accelerate—driven by everything from cybersecurity threats to the rise of cryptocurrency. New opportunities and new regulations abound, raising the stakes and generating new concerns for banks, investors, and insurers. Consumers and investors are expecting more in the way of new products, service delivery methods such as apps and mobile access, and increasingly responsive services. All of these developments introduce legal and business requirements that call for specialized counsel.

Our Approach

We advise clients in a wide range of areas that require highly specialized—and current—knowledge of regulations, laws, and reporting. We provide essential strategic counsel for mergers and acquisitions, company formations, and the capitalization of de novo banks and businesses. We oversee sensitive investigations and other administrative proceedings involving regulators and supervisory agencies. Our team provides deep experience, and is ready to take on challenges in compliance, privacy, and data security in order to help clients protect their assets and prepare for the evolving demands of tomorrow.
