Our Banking & Financial Institutions Practice Group has practical hands-on experience and knowledge about the financial services industry, uniquely positioning our attorneys to offer legal advice to banks and other industry-related companies. Many of our attorneys draw upon past experience as employees of financial institutions, and are therefore familiar with the operations and issues that arise daily, and know how to resolve these matters practically and efficiently.
We are corporate and securities law counsel for a substantial number of the publicly registered, SEC-reporting bank holding companies. Our clients include all types and sizes of institutions, from large banking organizations to small, privately held community banks. In addition, banks and other financial services clients headquartered outside of Wisconsin retain us for advice on Wisconsin state law matters.
We work with clients on developing new banking products and services, and in addition, our attorneys routinely develop regulatory compliance programs to meet federal and state law requirements.
We regularly represent financial institution clients with regard to mergers, acquisitions, asset purchases and branch purchases and sales. With the background and experience to develop related securities, tax, regulatory, antitrust and executive compensation strategies, our team has structured cross-industry acquisitions and joint ventures among banks, thrifts, insurance companies, mutual fund groups and securities firms. We also counsel and advise clients on sophisticated acquisition techniques and capital formation strategies. We often assist clients and their boards of directors with strategic planning and development and with implementing shareholder management strategies.
