Fredrikson & Byron

More than 30 Fredrikson & Byron attorneys and paralegals comprise the firm’s Bank & Finance Practice Group. To serve the diverse needs of our financial services clients, our attorneys have skills and experience in regulatory and enforcement matters, mergers and acquisitions, finance, corporate and securities, governance, tax, estate planning, real estate, bankruptcy, employment law, compensation and benefits, and litigation.

On July 21, 2010, President Obama signed into law the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, the most sweeping overhaul of the U.S. financial services sector since the Great Depression.  Dodd-Frank imposes new restrictions and requirements related to the offering of financial services products and services, changes the way in which financial services companies are supervised and structured, and creates the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

Fredrikson & Byron’s Bank & Finance Practice Group is well positioned to help our clients evaluate and respond to the challenges and opportunities facing banks and other financial services providers in the current environment. The group’s entrepreneurial lawyers understand how to combine law and business for great solutions. Since 1948, Fredrikson & Byron clients have valued our role as business advisors as well as our legal skills. Fredrikson & Byron is the firm where law and business meet.
