Banks & Financial Institutions

Waddell, Cole & Jones has a long history of representing clients in banking and finance, so we not only understand the industry but also the specific needs of our clients. Through our experience with banks, commercial lenders and financial organizations across Arkansas and the Mid-South, we have developed the knowledge and understanding to provide a wide range of effective legal services:

  • Commercial loans
  • Loan reviews and documentations
  • Workouts
  • Bankruptcies
  • Commercial transactions
  • Complex secured transactions
  • Loan restructuring
  • Real estate financing
  • Wealth management
  • Regulatory compliances
  • Regulatory investigations
  • Litigation and appeals

Over the past several years, it has been more difficult for individuals and families to handle their finances. We provide counsel for credit solutions and loan rescheduling in order to protect the interests of our clients and their customers. Additionally, we advise on matters related to capital improvements and commercial financing.

Because banks and financial institutions are regulated by both state and federal statutory law, the regulations are constantly changing. This challenges such organizations to keep up, making them targets for lawsuits alleging fraud or violations of the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC).

The attorneys at Waddell, Cole & Jones work hard to protect our clients from future lawsuits by staying up to date on current developments and thoroughly explaining the effects of the changes. In the case of a lawsuit, our attorneys move to protect client interests through negotiation, mediation, administrative hearings and, if necessary, in court.
