Community Banking & Financial Institutions

Davis Wright Tremaine has long been recognized as a leading financial-services firm. We provide skilled counsel to community financial institutions; regional, national and international banks; and trust and holding companies.

We offer particularly strong experience representing community banks, and work with a broad cross-section of the Pacific Northwest’s largest financial institutions on complex initial public offerings, on game-changing mergers and acquisitions, and on their most crucial regulatory matters.

We also routinely represent publicly held and privately owned banks as outside general counsel, advising them on general corporate and securities compliance matters. We help guide clients through the increasingly numerous and complex federal and state laws and regulations that govern the industry, working with them to ensure ongoing compliance.

The corporate community-banking clients we serve include not only local Pacific Northwest banks, but also national and multinational financial institutions, as well as underwriters and investors that have community-banking interests along the West Coast, Alaska, throughout the Pacific, and in Asia.
