Alan R. Rabkin has joined Holland & Hart in the firm’s Reno office, bringing sophisticated banking experience to the firm’s banking and financial institutions practice group. Rabkin will bring in-depth knowledge of how increased oversight and regulation impact banking institutions and experience with the opportunities and pitfalls of new online and payment processing options.
With over 35 years of experience working as inside and outside bank counsel, Rabkin focuses his practice on assisting small and medium-sized banks from formation through every facet of the operational and growth lifecycle, including acquisitions and mergers on behalf of both the acquired and acquiring bank.
“We are thrilled to have Alan join the practice team serving the Banking industry,” said Mona Burton, leader of the firm’s Real Estate, Construction, Finance, and Bankruptcy practice group. “His broad range of experience advising banks and other financial institutions, from local farm thrifts to national banks, will be a valuable resource to our banking industry clients.”
As a Compliance Manager certified by the American Bankers Association, Rabkin speaks the special language of the bank compliance department. He counsels boards, loan/audit/asset committees, compliance officers, risk management officers, and other bank executives on how to comply with ever-changing federal and state banking laws, rules, and regulations, and to navigate the maze of policies and procedures. He provides new business line and pre-audit advice and assists banks in their efforts to successfully handle internal and government audits.
Jim Newman, Administrative Partner of the firm’s Reno office adds, “Alan will be a great asset to our growing Reno office. Our regional clients will benefit from his extensive Nevada legislative experience and deep knowledge of the state’s many recent legislative changes.”
