Community Bankers of Wisconsin Selects Godfrey & Kahn as Legal Counsel

October 21, 1999

Madison, Wisconsin...Daryll Lund, President and CEO of the Community Bankers of Wisconsin (CBW), a trade association consisting of approximately 230 Wisconsin community banks, announced today that the CBW Board of Directors has selected the law firm of Godfrey & Kahn to serve as the association's legal counsel. Mr. Lund noted that Godfrey & Kahn, which has offices in Milwaukee, Madison, Appleton, Oshkosh and Green Bay, has a large financial services and community banking legal practice, and presently advises almost 40 of the CBW's members on a variety of legal matters. Mr. Lund stated that "The CBW expects to become more proactive on legislative and lobbying matters in Madison which affect Wisconsin's community banking industry, and we particularly look forward to Godfrey & Kahn's experience and assistance in this area."

Jim Sheriff, who heads Godfrey & Kahn's Financial Institutions Practice Group in Milwaukee, will coordinate the firm's work for the CBW. Mr. Sheriff stated that "We are excited about the opportunity to assist the CBW and its members at a time when both state and federal legislation continue to deregulate the financial services industry, and the need to assure the competitive position of Wisconsin's community banks remains high."

Founded in 1957, Godfrey & Kahn has a statewide network of offices. With more than 135 attorneys, Godfrey & Kahn provides legal and business advice to clients ranging from small businesses and governmental entities to large privately and publicly held national and international companies.
