Financial Institutions

Holland & Hart provides business-critical advice to financial institutions, helping them overcome hurdles and ensuring our clients are well-positioned for success.

We represent national, regional, and community commercial banks as well as other financial institutions in contentious, high-stakes disputes in courts across the nation. Our experience includes litigating disputes arising from mergers, acquisitions, sales, corporate finance, commercial and industrial loans, and corporate finance transactions. Our litigators have achieved successes for clients in cases alleging investment management, corporate governance, fiduciary duty, director and officer liability, and securities offering irregularities, as well as Ponzi scheme, other fraud claims, and regulatory compliance matters. We also advise on and litigate disputes involving guarantees, liens, checks, payment systems, Uniform Commercial Code issues, and lender liability claims.

Mergers and Acquisitions
US and foreign lenders rely on our financial regulatory guidance to avoid running afoul of banking regulations that apply to their operations. Traditional and nontraditional lenders, thrifts, credit unions, investment firms, and other lenders all rely on us to ensure they are fully compliant with applicable regulations. Our experience also extends to advising and representing other interested parties, including borrowers, depositors, and service providers, on how banking regulations affect their businesses. We provide practical, results-focused advice, guiding clients through the complicated regulatory terrain, making the complex simple with clear, actionable steps to make certain our clients meet their regulatory obligations.

Our team offers practical counsel based on decades of experience representing financial services institutions, including US and foreign banks, issuers, investors, borrowers, buyers, and sellers, as well as boards of directors and special committees. We advise on finance-related issues in the context of mergers, acquisitions, collaborative arrangements, and other strategic alliances. We address capital raising and allocation, regulatory compliance issues, corporate governance, director and officer liability concerns, and loan structuring in transactions across industries.
