Banking and Finance

At Moskowitz Mandell Salim & Simowitz, our attorneys handle a wide array of banking issues from customer disputes to complex litigation.   Equally important, we provide thorough counsel to banks concerning regulatory compliance. 

We understand the regulations whether they emanate from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), the Federal Reserve System, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency or from the myriad of state agencies that govern banks and financial institutions in Florida.  We offer advice on the development and execution of comprehensive compliance plans, the need for oversight and monitoring, the areas of risk, and the means to improve situations requiring remedy.

If a bank is in the midst of a regulatory investigation, we offer representation to defend from overzealous regulators, and advice on when settlement may be appropriate.  Our attorneys can support the bank with transactions and workout agreements with customers in default. 

There are numerous acts of legislation that demand understanding and compliance such as the Truth in Saving Act and the Expedited Funds Availability Act.  We stay abreast of these and all the rapidly changing laws in the area of banking and finance.
