S&C has the preeminent banking practice in the United States. We have a long tradition of representing leading U.S. and non-U.S. banks in transactions of every kind, as well as in regulatory initiatives and legislation, enforcement actions, payment system issues, anti-money laundering and corporate governance issues.
In transactional matters, we are leaders in bank M&A. We have unparalleled experience in bank securities offerings, regularly deal with the disclosure issues facing banks, and have been involved in the development of many of the most creative capital financings by banking organizations.
In matters involving regulatory or statutory interpretation, a substantial element of our success is our wide experience in dealing with the regulators themselves. We have been closely involved in the major legislative developments affecting the industry, and have participated as amicus curiae counsel on behalf of The Clearing House or other trade associations or as counsel to a principal in almost every major judicial case relating to bank powers and fundamental issues of importance to the industry.
Our banking practice has been recognized by some of the world’s most prominent legal business media, including Chambers USA, Chambers Global, PLC Which Lawyer? Yearbook and IFLR1000.
