Our ability to provide practical, decisive advice concerning day-to-day management decisions is unmatched. Our practice includes counseling clients on developments in regulatory issues and obligations, the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), the Bank Secrecy Act/anti-money laundering law (BSA/AML), security evaluation and enforcement.

Timing and attention to detail are critical to financial institutions and corporations engaged in structuring loan transactions. When negotiating agreements and preparing documentation in any situation, we act with speed and accuracy.

We participate in disputes arising out of credit transactions on behalf of lenders or borrowers. Such disputes may relate to collections, guarantees, security assessment and realization, priority of claims, or the enforcement of rights in bankruptcy and receivership. The breadth of our background in litigation is an asset in negotiating equitable out-of-court settlements and, if necessary, effectively representing our clients at trial.
