Formation of De Novo Banks

Barack Ferrazzano has been one of the most active law firms in the Midwest and in several states across the country in representing de novo banks and their organizing groups on a broad range of topics at every stage of a bank's life cycle.  Over the past fifteen years, we have assisted over 100 de novo banks with their formation, organizational structures and public and private capital raising activities.  Because of our firm's extensive experience in the establishment of de novo banks, we are particularly well-suited to handle the unique issues faced by new banks in their first several years of operation, including regulatory and enforcement matters, market expansion, secondary stock offerings and formation of holding companies.
