Banks, lending institutions and credit companies are extensively regulated by overlapping state and federal regulations — the Federal Reserve Board, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and various state banking departments keep a tight rein on regulatory compliance and day-to-day banking operations.

Attorneys who practice in this complicated area of law must not only be well-versed in these regulations and regulatory compliance, but also extremely talented at defending enforcement actions, assisting with transactional matters and litigating complex disputes between domestic and foreign banking institutions, investors and the government.

Fargo Attorneys Who Understand The Local And Global Nature Of Banking

At Kaler Doeling, PLLP, our lead banking attorney, Brad Sinclair, has been representing the interests of banking institutions for over 30 years. His banking practice has been successful and diverse — he has appeared numerous times before both the North Dakota and South Dakota Banking Commissions regarding branch banking applications, worked for a troubled bank as in-house legal counsel to stabilize their operations, and convinced the Chicago Federal Reserve Board to reverse the Federal Reserve regarding an adverse audit.

Our team of banking attorneys skillfully performs a variety of legal services for lending institutions, credit companies and leasing companies, including the following:

  • Drafting all types of loan and leasing documents including lease agreements, promissory notes, mortgages, loan agreements, loan commitments, extensions, modifications and change in terms agreements
  • Performing all types of troubled debt restructure services including negotiating and drafting debt settlement and resolution agreements, preparing watch officer comments, servicing the troubled credit, and either rehabilitating the credit, restructuring the credit or providing an exit strategy for the credit
  • Representing creditors in all aspects of bankruptcy proceedings and state court litigation to enforce loan documentation and collect outstanding obligations
  • Representing banks in branch banking litigation or contests
  • Drafting various future standardized loan documents for banks, including loan participation agreements and standard powers of attorney for bank customers to sign to avoid bank employees from having to interpret complete power of attorney agreements
  • Representing banks in virtually all aspects of lending and collecting
