The ever-changing face of banking and financial services makes it more important than ever for law firms to have an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the workings of this complex industry. To effectively navigate the labyrinth of regulatory mandates, you need a law firm that provides creative, practical advice in a cost-effective manner.
As a premier banking and commercial law firm, our attorneys enjoy an excellent reputation built on decades of successful representation of major commercial, savings and foreign banks, trust companies, finance companies, credit unions and various other types of financial institutions. Phillips Lytle has also built a substantial practice to meet the financing needs of our FORTUNE 500, midsized and closely held business clients. Phillips Lytle attorneys have been involved in a number of financial milestones. Our attorneys were, in conjunction with Marine Midland Bank, at the forefront of establishing a credit card clearing network now known as MasterCard. In addition, a number of Phillips Lytle attorneys played a major role in drafting the Federal Truth in Lending Act, Fair Credit Reporting Act and the Equal Credit Opportunity Act.
