Credit Unions

Baldini Lang LLC is the premier credit union law firm in Connecticut. We also have a national credit union practice representing and supporting credit unions in contract negotiations with critical, high-risk financial technology vendors.

Whether efficiently and effectively negotiating a core processing agreement with Fiserv, FIS, Finastra, Jack Henry or another fintech vendor, interpreting complex regulations, providing practical HR advice, forming a CUSO, or leading a credit union merger, we put our skills and experience to work as passionate and collaborative advocates for our credit union clients.

We understand and believe in the credit union mission of being not-for-profit, member-owned financial institutions run by committed employees and governed by volunteer boards. We represent and advise our credit union clients on a wide range of matters, including:

  • Vendor contract drafting, negotiation and due diligence

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

  • State and federal regulatory compliance

  • Regulatory examinations conducted by state and federal regulators

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.
