Kennedy Sutherland is uniquely dedicated to representing financial institutions and financial intermediaries, including community banks, bank and thrift holding companies, broker-dealers, investment advisors and specialty finance companies on achieving their strategic business goals despite the challenges of an increasingly regulated, unpredictable and always evolving economic climate. With the changing market, Kennedy Sutherland attorneys strive to educate their clients on legislative and regulatory developments ranging from the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and Basel III, as well as other aspects of financial services reform. This focus and our experience, knowledge, and passion allows us to provide our financial institution clients with tactical advice, efficient and effective problem-solving counsel, while identifying business opportunities for our clients that can lead to profitable expansion of their business.
By listening to our clients and learning their goals and concerns our attorneys are able to provide advice and help facilitate acquisitions, sales, mergers, restructuring arrangements, and roll-up transactions for banks and financial institutions, and aid clients in branch purchases, sales and expansions of their branch networks. We have served as counsel in initial public offerings (IPOs), strategic business combinations and have provided guidance on a wide range of issues essential to our clients’ and their shareholder’s core objectives, such as changes to capital requirements, regulatory obligations, corporate opportunities and challenges in the post Dodd Frank world.
