Don't Take the Wrong Way Out

October 22, 2012

On Oct. 14, 2012, an article by Burr & Forman attorneys Victor Hayslip and Ben Coulter was published in Investment News. Titled, "Don't Take the Wrong Way Out," the piece describes "war stories" on departing brokers who leave their companies without regard for key issues, sometimes finding themselves in the middle of costly litigation, regulatory inquire and even embarrassment. Hayslip and Coulter address the repercussions for these brokers as well as how investment firms and their brokers alike can avoid costly legal issues when the broker leaves to join another firm.

TESTIMONIALS

  • β€œA good lawyer with a good reputation.”

    -Chambers 2012

  • “As a banker working out troubled loans, I really appreciated Keith's ability to help me with my legal issues, but I really valued his ability to help me understand the full spectrum of responses available to me as well as describe the pros and cons of each option. Keith's value as an attorney is amazing, but is far surpassed by his ability as a trusted advisor.”

    -Rebecca York, Mercantile Bank

  • β€œHe is an excellent products liability lawyer. He is good in front of a jury, always prepared. He is recognized as an excellent lawyer.”

    -Chambers 2012

  • “For the past four years, my Atlantic Capital Bank deal team has engaged the legal services of Lindsey Arnold to close several large and complex bank loan transactions.  To name a few, these deals include a $10million line of credit to a linen service company, a $15million Term Loan to a prominent, market leading textile manufacturer (and a subsequent recapitalization of this loan arrangement), a $12million Term Loan facility for a major grocery store chain, a $12million Construction to Mini Perm Facility and a separate $10million for a large national beverage distribution family of businesses.  Not only was Lindsey’s service of the utmost professionalism and very quick responsiveness, but also she treated the bank’s client’s with a very high level of courteousness and integrity.  Our clients are the lifeblood of our business and it is important that our legal partners handle our relationships get off to a good start.  In addition, rarely do loans sit on a shelf…there are always changes along the way and Lindsey has been very quick to respond to our needs (driven by our clients’ needs) in terms of amendments and deal restructurings.  In addition to solid deal execution…Lindsey is a terrific resource when it comes to early stage legal guidance as we as bankers think through competitive and creative deal structures.  Lindsey has been great and we hope to steer more deals in her direction as we grow the institution.”
