Representing lenders in transactions is a significant part of our work.   We also represent corporate clients in their borrowings; represent clients in asset sales and securitization transactions, representing issuers of public and private debt securities, beneficial holders of such securities and trustees; counsel our bank clients in hostile takeover attempts, auction processes for possible sales, and other corporate governance matters.

The list of federal agencies, laws and regulations that govern banks and other financial institutions seems endless and ever-growing.
