Banking Law

EVW’s banking practice consists of representing foreign and domestic banks in their lending, derivative and trade finance (including letters of credit) activities, as well as regulatory filings with state and federal banking authorities. We also handle responses to subpoenas for documentation held in branches and affiliates outside the United States. We assist in dealing with delinquent borrowers and in pursuing collection remedies. We represent lenders and borrowers in secured and unsecured transactions, assisted by our colleagues in real estate development, financing, and asset-based lending. Whether your need is domestic or requires an international banking lawyer, Eaton & Van Winkle’s team has the requisite qualifications to handle your case.

EVW banking lawyers are part of a long tradition dating back to the time William Mellon Eaton joined Mitchell Van Winkle to form Eaton & Van Winkle. Mr. Eaton had been in the banking department of a major New York firm, which had long represented a number of New York’s premier banking institutions. This tradition has continued under the leadership of Charles Fewell, who coincidentally spent seven years with and in the Banking Department of the firm Mr. Eaton left to form Eaton & Van Winkle. Before joining Eaton & Van Winkle, Mr. Fewell was deputy general counsel of a New York-based commercial bank and then Managing Director and Chief Counsel for North America of a major international commercial and investment bank.
