Commercial Restructuring and Bankruptcy:
Clients tell our team members how well our multi-office integration works. They say they value our model, which leverages the strengths of attorneys across our many practice areas, including our experienced Financial Services team. If our attorneys can’t answer a question on a client’s restructuring or bankruptcy matter, we pick up the phone and call an attorney in another office to get that answer, especially about issues unique to that market or industry.
Crisis Preparedness and Response:
Helping clients expect the unexpected is part of our job. Our lawyers across multiple disciplines are seasoned counselors who help clients weather any storm, whether it’s a hurricane, ransomware attack or emerging health threat.
Our team of lawyers frequently receives national and regional recognition for providing efficient client service across the financial services spectrum. One characteristic that distinguishes us both regionally and nationally is our comprehensive coverage of the industry – reflected in the six practice groups within our Financial Services practice: Commercial Lending; Creditor's Rights / Special Assets / Workouts; Estate, Trust and Fiduciary Litigation; Commercial Financial Services Litigation; Consumer Financial Services Litigation; and Regulatory / Operations. Many of our lawyers previously worked as in-house counsel for banks and financial institutions, giving them an insider’s perspective into the client’s business.
