Baird Holm attorneys represent clients in all aspects of banking and lending law. Our clients include financial institutions and bank holding companies, which we advise in connection with state and federal regulation and compliance matters; litigation; loan foreclosure and collections; and the documentation of loans and other financial transactions. We also provide services with respect to the formation of bank holding companies; financial industry mergers and acquisitions; and related securities, corporate, and tax issues. In this highly regulated industry, we advise and counsel clients in responding to various government regulatory and administrative actions, particularly where substantial penalties may be involved.

We assist our banking, insurance company and other financial institution clients, as well as our business clients, in a variety of related transactions, including recapitalization; leveraged financings; revolving credit arrangements; syndicated loan transactions; and significant real estate, lease, construction, and utility project financings.
