‘We worked with four law firms before we discovered Ballard-Spahr. Our work with Ballard thus far has convinced us that it was worth the effort of looking for ”the right” firm. In our business, we are merging two highly regulated segments of Financial Services into one novel product. This means that we need a firm with both depth and breadth of knowledge and capabilities. In addition to that, they need to be creative, pragmatic and wise in terms of knowing when to let product innovation lead and when to be conservative based on risk and regulatory constraints. All of our needs have been satisfied thus far and we are confident in maintaining this relationship over the long term.’

‘Partners included John Culhane and John Socknat (state-by-state regulations for lending), Noah Robbins (conflicts with other parties), Nathan Seiler (VCs and Term Sheets) and finally Kim Phan (product and digital customer experiences). Each individual has consistently demonstrated depth of experience and command of their domain as they customized their work to our needs and timelines.’

‘James Kim is a huge asset to my legal team. He gives practical, commercial advice and has a deep understanding of the regulatory concerns facing fintechs. He always makes himself available and is very responsive to our needs.’

‘I worked with James Kim on a transaction. He was knowledgeable in the market standard and when in doubt reached out to his peers – which was very useful for us. Also needed clarification on how to treat the CARES act and James brought a colleague Kim Phan who was knowledgeable and immediately available for a call.’

‘They were generous with their knowledge; experienced in the subject matter; reached out to experts within their firm on matters outside their area of expertise but managed those additional resources so we did not have to do so.’
