Banking Law

Sophisticated Guidance

With comprehensive business, corporate, bankruptcy, and real estate law experience, Day Ketterer’s Banking Law attorneys are uniquely equipped to guide you through the complex issues facing today’s financial institutions.

Solid Experience

In addition to representing banks and other creditors, our attorneys have worked with The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), regulators, and assuming institutions regarding numerous legal issues associated with the transfer of assets during an FDIC takeover.

Day Ketterer's Banking Law attorneys also have extensive experience advising lenders in all stages of a commercial loan from commitment through closing. We work as part of the banker's team to analyze credit issues, handle all due diligence, draft the loan documents (or review the lender's documents), and close the transaction.

When faced with commercial customer disputes, loan defaults, and other customer conflicts, we draw on our robust litigation experience to defend your interests.
