Financial Services Regulation Law

I have worked directly and substantively with John Podvin, one of Shapiro Bieging Barber Otteson's banking regulatory lawyers. John's industry knowledge and experience are top shelf, and his client attentiveness and dedication to service of their interests is unmatched. I strongly endorse him and his firm.

Financial Services Regulation Law

I would put Shapiro Bieging Barber Otteson up against any firm in Financial Services Regulation. They have relationships with the regulatory agencies and have incredible expertise in helping to apply Financial Services Regulatory law. They punch above their weight in that they are a smaller firm with excellent professional staff and a great grasp of financial service regulation..

Tony George Kitsap Bank

Financial Services Regulation Law

Shapiro Bieging Barber Otteson is my go-to firm for the financial services industry and bank regulatory issues. They are true experts in the area of compliance with bank regulations and, as importantly, bank regulators. They are small, focused, and responsive. They answer the phone when I call. Time and again, they have provided immediate and thoughtful advice based on their years of experience, and they help me and my clients develop and implement strategic solutions. If you believe in hiring lawyers, not law firms, this is a law firm full of lawyers you will want to hire.

Arnold Spencer Coinsource

Banking and Finance Law

We consider Shapiro Bieging Barber Otteson to be our "go-to" law firm for all corporate needs. We are a $1 billion-plus community bank located outside of Colorado, and Shapiro Bieging Barber Otteson helps us in nearly all of our regulatory matters, corporate structure and capital issues, shareholder interaction, mergers and acquisitions, non-bank subsidiaries, real estate matters, and general contracts and agreements. They know our state, our geography, our regulators and our competition. They are well-versed in all the aforementioned areas, and they not only are responsive and understanding, but they also care about our bank and our people. I can't recommend them highly enough.

Tony George Kitsap Bank

Commercial Litigation

As a Court Appointed Receiver I need counsel on some cases. I primarily work with Duncan Barber of Shapiro Bieging Barber Otteson. His ability to understand the case and what needs to be done is what makes him so efficient with his billing time. The complaints he drafts spell out all the relevant matters, and he gets the Judge to understand the real issues in the case. I would absolutely recommend this firm.

Eric Grothe The Receiver's Inc.

Insurance Law

We had a construction defect case going in multiple directions, with numerous carriers and needed a firm to bring the case back in line. Steve Shapiro and his group at Shapiro Bieging Barber Otteson were instrumental in getting all parties to the table, working together for the betterment of the case and protecting our firm in the process. They handled all the insurance negotiations for us throughout the entire settlement process. Their knowledge and understanding of insurance law is outstanding, they do an excellent job managing the process and the monies spent utilizing them was well worth it. I would highly recommend them and wouldn't consider utilizing anyone else.

Dan Zahtila Black Roofing, Inc.
