With increasing competition from out-of-state banking conglomerates and more stringent compliance requirements at the federal level, it can feel more challenging than ever for Mississippi financial institutions in order to thrive in our current economy. Which is why it has never been more important for banks and related financial institutions in the state to make sure they are taking all necessary steps to maintain compliance not only with federal standards but also Mississippi standards. The business pages and TV news are rife with stories of financial institutions that have come under fire for failing to comply with state and federal regulatory requirements, and a few mistakes can snowball into significant and even catastrophic consequences for your financial institution. At Herrington Law, our experienced attorneys work with financial institutions across Mississippi to ensure compliance with state and federal regulatory requirements and manage all relevant risks.

How We Help Our Banking Clients

Our banking compliance team will work with you to fully assess your relevant compliance needs, and we can act to oversee all risks related to state and federal banking compliance or focus specifically on an area of concern, such as a particular transaction or a new field of banking in which your institution wishes to conduct business.

We will work with you to assess, manage, and respond to Mississippi state compliance risks (as well as foreign state compliance matters as they arise) either as part of your institution’s regular compliance efforts or in response to regulators with issues relating to:

  • Mortgages and foreclosure policies and practices
  • Consumer and auto lending
  • Retail banking
  • Credit cards
  • General consumer protection
  • Internal compliance issues

As your legal team, we will work to improve your compliance practices and procedures (including drafting and implementing procedures) while also responding to regulatory inquiries and representing your institution in all compliance matters.

Managing Your Risk

In recent years, the primary focus of banking compliance has grown from more financial-focused matters relating to savings and securities issues to criminal and national security issues. Enormous fines and levies have been levied against domestic and global banks as a result. We will work with your business to ensure proper compliance and management of all relevant risks.
As attorneys who’ve represented not only banks but also plaintiff-side consumers in massive litigation matters relating to consumer protection and unfair and deceptive trade practices over two decades, Herrington Law has the expertise to identify the litigation, compliance, and regulatory risks in your business and to provide counsel and direction in responding to such risks.
