Banking & Financial Services

We have significant experience providing legal services to banks and financial institutions, tailoring efforts to meet the goals of national and regional financial institutions, community banks, and credit union clients.

Tailored Service in a Complex Industry

Rothberg’s attorneys have significant experience in providing legal services to banks and financial institutions, tailoring their efforts to meet the goals of national and regional financial institutions, community banks, and credit union clients. Our banking law attorneys assist financial institutions with federal regulatory matters as well as Indiana-specific requirements. We regularly advise clients in both the commercial and retail contexts. Additionally, our banking lawyers have significant experience in addressing issues and providing counsel specific to agricultural lending. We are Freddie Mac® and Fannie Mae® approved, and we often provide services to the mortgage lending industry.

We work diligently to exceed client expectations. We provide our clients with regular updates on emerging legal trends affecting the banking industry, the myriad of changing federal and state consumer protection laws, new statutes and case decisions, UCC issues, and other compliance and institutional matters. Our attorneys seek to value-add by working in proactive partnership with each client – whether it's a compliance, origination, or recovery maximization issue.

We assist banking clients with origination needs by negotiation and drafting specialized loan and security documents and credit facilities tailored to the particulars of the financing transaction. We work closely with our clients in the workout and default context, as well, advocating for our clients as they navigate prelitigation negotiation and potential resolution. As circumstances may dictate, we zealously represent our clients throughout Indiana and beyond in state, federal and bankruptcy courts.
