Learn about Legal Issues Affecting California Banks – Attend California Bankers Association’s Annual Bank Counsel Seminar from May 4-6

Another noteworthy conference happening next week is the California Bankers Association’s 44th Annual Bank Counsel Seminar from May 4-6 in Huntington Beach. Influential lenders, bank counsel, outside counsel, attorneys from bank regulatory agencies, and compliance officers will be in attendance for this three-day educational event, with seminars customized for each type of audience. I have attended and spoken at the Bank Counsel Seminar in past years. It is the premier meeting for legal issues affecting California banks.

This year, JMBM’s very own Marty Orlick will be speaking on Americans with Disabilities Act compliance for financial institutions at 3pm on Thursday, May 5. Marty is a past contributor to and provides sensible advice to pass along to bank clients about the ADA. I suggest you take a look at his insightful presentation, which he will speak about in depth during the conference. By the way, Jeffer Mangels Butler & Mitchell LLP is also a featured sponsor of the seminar. Register for this conference at

NOTE TO CONSUMERS: As a matter of Firm policy, JMBM does not represent individual consumers who have disputes with their lenders. Many lenders have specialized consumer workout professionals who have the time to help consumer borrowers. There are many fine attorneys who specialize in representing consumers. Individuals with consumer lending problems should contact a lawyer or law firm who specializes in consumer insolvency and bankruptcy in their local area. When in doubt, we suggest you contact your local bar association’s Lawyer Referral Service. [For example, see Bar Association of SF or LA County Bar Association Lawyer Referral Services]
