Financial Services Regulation Law

Barack Ferrazzano Kirschbaum & Nagelberg is one the premier financial services practices in the nation. Their lawyers (and just as importantly, their paralegals) have seen it and done it all, and as a result they can handle virtually anything related to financial services very efficiently. Moreover, they maintain excellent relationships with all of the regulatory agencies (including the FRB, OCC and SEC) and are proficient at knowing who to call, what the questions will be, and how to best structure the transaction to address the likely concerns. I would highly recommend them to any bank or other financial institution.

Banking and Finance Law

Barack Ferrazzano Kirschbaum & Nagelberg is outstanding. The lawyers and other professionals, including paralegals and administrative assistants, are all top-notch and work very well together. I have worked with this firm since the early 90s. Their depth and breadth of experience is very strong, and while their rates are comparable to the much larger firms in Chicago/NY, they are worth every penny. One testimony to the tremendous culture and professionalism at BFKN is the continuity of personnel at every level. The firm experiences virtually no voluntary turnover in lawyers or staff, and this breeds an environment where nobody is afraid to say "hang on, one of my colleagues has done this many times, let's get her on the phone and hear her thoughts as well." I have also been pleasantly surprised at how many times I've called them and said "we're doing such and such, and the lawyer representing the other side is x", and the response has been "oh, we know him, we've dealt with him before." There have also been numerous times when our counter-party has said "Our lawyers told us they know BFKN and are happy to be working with them on this transaction." Each of those situations makes any transaction more easy to complete. In summary, my 25 years of experience with BFKN is that they add value to almost anything we are doing. I have the highest regard for this firm and its people.
