Financial Services National Standing
Technology and competition are driving innovation in the financial services industry. A changing regulatory environment has prompted organizations to transform their operating models to meet strict compliance standards and still give customers what they want in their everyday business transactions. Kilpatrick Townsend attorneys, a number of whom are former regulators, have a comprehensive understanding of the industry and the multitude of regulations that govern it. We also have the technical knowledge to assist clients with opportunities in fintech, a force that is rapidly dissolving industry boundaries and creating new business models.
A Fine Balance
Over the course of four decades, our firm has built a national reputation and counseled hundreds of banking and financial institutions on a wide variety of transactional and regulatory matters. We balance commercial considerations with strict compliance and a goal to minimize risk where possible. Kilpatrick Townsend has been named a leading firm for Financial Services Regulation: Financial Institutions M&A nationwide in the 2015-2017 editions of Chambers USA, and we have been ranked as one of the nation's top 10 firms for five consecutive years based on the number of M&A transactions by SNL Bank and Thrift Legal Advisor.
We work with startups, emerging growth companies, mature public corporations, private equity and venture investors, and banks and other financial institutions in acquisitions, patents, outsourcing, commercial disputes, as well as in maintaining compliance with all relevant regulatory frameworks. Our team also provides counseling and advocacy related to state licensing and intellectual property issues, and represents companies facing investigations and other enforcement actions.
