Banking and Finance Law

Practice Group

Our Banking and Finance attorneys represent a number of banks and other institutions in commercial and real estate lending transactions. We monitor state and federal legislative and regulatory developments affecting financial institutions, their affiliates and their securities. We counsel our banking and financial institution clients with regard to complicated compliance and enforcement matters, as well as assisting our clients with numerous types of transactions including, but not limited to, secured transactions and structured financing. We also advise trust departments on fiduciary matters.

Our Banking and Finance practice encompasses a broad range of lending, regulatory, corporate, securities, transactional and litigation matters, and one of our team members is a former director of an Arkansas chartered bank. We also regularly represent our banking clients in work-out negotiations, refinances and collection matters.

Our clients include a wide array of financial institutions such as commercial banks, bank holding companies, thrift institutions and mortgage companies, as well as those individuals affiliated with such institutions.
