Community Banks

Our mission is to be the premier law firm in the nation representing community banks in high-risk financial technology contract negotiations. Whether negotiating a core processing agreement with Fiserv, FIS, or Jack Henry, or advising on other matters, we put our skills and experience to work as passionate and collaborative advocates for our community bank clients.

We represent and advise our community bank clients on a wide range of matters, including:

  • Vendor contract drafting, negotiation and due diligence

  • Core processor RFP’s, contract drafting, and negotiations

  • Consumer regulatory compliance

  • Privacy notices and policies

  • Information security issues and breach response and notifications

  • Employment matters, including hiring, employment agreements, terminations, and reductions-in-force, as well as drafting employee policies and handbooks

  • Dispute resolution and litigation management

  • Internal investigations

  • Commercial leases

  • Trademark search and registration

Core Contract Review

We offer clients the option of our Core Contract Review, which is a simplified, fixed-cost approach to the technology vendor review process. Our Core Contract Review includes (i) a thorough redlined revision of your technology vendor contract with proposed changes and comments; (ii) an executive-friendly Core Contract Review Dashboard for your internal use and as a checklist with your vendor; and (iii) a Core Contract Review Regulatory Checklist, which analyzes how well the contract meets the requirements and expectations of your regulator. All within five business days. And all for one low fixed fee.
