The credit crisis has transformed the banking and investment industries. For banks and other financial institutions, transparency and risk governance are not just good business practices, they’re government mandates. Kilpatrick Townsend has a long history of helping financial institutions of all structures and sizes negotiate the maze of federal and state compliance.

A number of the firm’s Banking and Financial Institutions attorneys have held positions with financial institution regulatory authorities. This institutional knowledge proves invaluable when a bank is facing investigation or litigation, such as lender liability, consumer class actions and unfair practices claims. We regularly represent clients before the Federal Reserve Board, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Office of Thrift Supervision and other state banking regulators.

Our clients in these industries include:

  • National banks and lending institutions
  • De novo banks
  • Regional and community banks
  • Thrifts and savings and loan associations
  • Credit unions
