Led out of Washington DC by Richard Schaberg, Hogan Lovells US LLP’s five-partner team’s two-pronged regulatory offering focuses on regulatory compliance and regulatory-driven transactional work for regional and community banking entities, as well as advice to international financial institutions on their US operations. With banking share prices on the rise and with community banks looking to consolidate, M&A activity in the sector continues to pick up apace and the team has handled numerous mandates including Schaberg’s work for Sussex Bancorp on its $45.4m merger with Community Bank of Bergen County and for Bangor Bancorp MHC on its $45m acquisition of First Colebrook Bancorp and Granite Bank. In light of the low interest rate environment, the team has also been active advising entities as they seek to diversify product lines to gain greater profitability. In this regard, Schaberg has been advising Radius Bancorp on the regulatory issues associated with the development of new technology products and partnership agreements, and also acted for it on the acquisition of NewStar Financial’s equipment finance business. Leveraging the firm’s vast international network, the team regularly advises international financial services entities on their US-related activity. For example, it has been acting for Spanish banking group Santander on acquisitions it has made through its recently launched fintech fund, including its recent investment in Digital Asset Holdings. Stuart Stein and Gregory Parisi are also recommended.
