Financial Services

As a provider of financial services, what keeps you awake at night?  The ever-increasing burden of the regulatory environment and the latest pronouncement from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau or FINRA? How to make money in a tight interest rate environment and a highly competitive market?  Perhaps it’s the relentless globalization of financial markets and the impact on your organization. Like any business, financial institutions require counsel regarding employment issues, intellectual property, mergers and acquisitions, litigation and real estate, but your business is complicated by a unique overlay of regulatory issues and market dynamics.

At Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie, we get it. With experience ranging from some of the largest banks in the world to community banks, and from insurance companies to broker-dealers, our finance team understands your business challenges and opportunities. We’re ready to help.
