Luse Gorman was founded in 1993 as a specialty law firm dedicated to representing financial institutions, with a particular emphasis on community banks.  Since then, we have grown into the largest community financial institution law firm in the nation.  Much of our practice focuses on transactional matters.  We advise financial institutions on mergers and acquisitions and a broad range of capital raising transactions, including common stock and preferred stock offerings, subordinated debt offerings, mutual-to-stock conversions, and mutual holding company reorganizations. We are routinely ranked as one of the top law firms nationally for merger and acquisition transactions by community financial institutions, and have been ranked number one in three of the last five years.  Since 2000 we have completed more financial institutions merger and acquisition transactions than any other firm in the nation. We are also routinely ranked as one of the top law firms nationally in total capital raising transactions by financial institutions.  Because of the significant number of transactions we complete for our clients each year, we offer an exceptional combination of knowledge and experience that we believe is unmatched by other law firms around the country. In addition to our transactional practice, we provide a range of other services to community financial institutions, including advising clients on matters such as SEC and public company reporting and disclosure, shareholder relations, executive compensation and employee benefits matters, taxation, corporate governance, regulatory enforcement and compliance, holding company reorganizations, de novo bank formations and charter conversions.
