The attorneys of Jones Walker LLP’s downtown Washington, DC office represent financial institutions, bank and financial institution holding companies, community banks, thrifts, and other clients from across the United States
in a broad range of transactional, securities, executive compensation, and bank regulatory matters. We regularly serve as principal corporate and securities counsel to financial services companies and as principal securities law
counsel to national and regional investment banking firms.
We provide comprehensive counsel on public and private capital raising transactions, reporting requirements under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, corporate governance and stockholder matters, mergers and acquisitions, tender offers, executive compensation and stock-related benefit plans, enforcement and regulatory actions, charter conversions, mutual-to-stock conversions and mutual holding company formations, and corporate tax matters. Our attorneys regularly represent clients before all US federal banking agencies, the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), as well as state banking and corporation agencies. In conjunction with lawyers from the firm’s Capitol Hill office, we also represent the interests of businesses before committees of the US Senate and House of Representatives, individual lawmakers, and executive branch officials.
Prior to entering private practice, many of the attorneys in our Washington, DC office have held senior positions at key federal financial regulatory authorities, including the Federal Reserve Board, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, and the SEC.
