Financial Institutions

Foley’s Financial Institutions attorneys have the breadth and depth of experience combined with the geographical reach necessary to serve the diverse needs of financial institutions.
From financing transactions to litigation and intellectual property, our national team of experienced attorneys is well positioned to address the wide-ranging legal needs of our bank and other financial clients.
We regularly provide counsel on commercial lending, workout, bankruptcy, bank regulatory, and other similar legal services to financial institution clients like you, and have the presence and bench strength to provide more customized regional and local “on the ground” client support when and where it is needed. We also have the resources necessary to support your financial institution as a business by providing effective representation on a full range of legal issues, including employment law, real estate, environmental, tax, data security, privacy, and white collar crime.

Our client base includes large and small banks and bank holding companies, thrift institutions, leasing companies, and asset-based lenders. We also work with hedge funds, financial services boutiques, payment networks, and bank card issuers. Drawing on our diverse experience, we advise banks and other financial institutions, lenders, governmental and other public issuers, arrangers, underwriters, trustees and trust companies, and borrowers on financing transactions — domestically and internationally, as well as across all industry sectors.

We take pride in our hands-on approach, made possible in large part by the composition of our attorneys — many of whom are banking law veterans and CPAs. Our deep industry knowledge and experience, combined with our long-standing ties and relationships within the financial services sector, has made us the go-to firm in a variety of distinct, but complementary areas.
