An Executive Briefing - A Directors' Update

This popular session explores current legal, regulatory and business issues facing community banks today and delivers practical advice for addressing these issues. Topics include current areas of emphasis by bank-regulatory agencies, windows of opportunity for growing an organization and improving profitability in an era of limited economic growth and low interest rates, capital raising strategies for privately held community banks, and emerging best practices for boards of directors.
We discuss actual client stories from a large and diverse community-banking practice and give participants an inside look at successful strategies of others and what the rest of the industry is doing.
Stan has extensive experience providing strategic counsel to banks on compliance and regulatory issues, general banking corporate matters, secured lending, distressed loans and assets, failed bank receiverships and Fintech agreements and partnerships. Stan's background includes experience as an attorney with the FDIC, sitting on the board of a financial institution, and representing banks in private practice for over 15 years.
Emily focuses her practice on capital raising transactions, mergers and acquisitions, securities, and corporate governance. She has a wide array of experience in structuring corporate and financial transactions, most notably representing companies in merger transactions, issuers and underwriters in public and private offerings of debt and equity securities, and financial institutions in lending transactions.
