Kaplan Voekler Cunningham & Frank’s lawyers have deep experience representing a wide spectrum of institutions in the financial services industry and the legal challenges they face from corporate operations to compliance to transactions.

KVCF’s clients have included large, as well as local and regional banks, and private equity and institutional investors and investment advisory firms in locales around the nation. They rely upon us for our teams’ decades of combined experience, proven results and ability to innovate.

We offer financial services firm something most large law firms cannot: A highly agile, deeply experienced team with the capability of handling large, complex matters — sophisticated multitier debt financing, joint ventures, and roll-up transactions to name a few. Meanwhile, the size of our firm and our pricing structure allows us to take on specialized areas of practice that larger law firms may be forced to ignore.

At a time of substantial change for the financial services industry, our goal is to reduce our lending and financial services clients’ regulatory and business risks to a minimum while helping them achieve their commercial objectives. Our team is nimble enough to advise them as they grapple with legal challenges stemming from the FinTech revolution, to provide fresh perspectives aimed at helping them invest in new businesses and to grapple with a whole host of transactional and litigation issues.

We have, for example, represented regional and national banks, mortgage brokers, and other commercial entities in a wide range of litigation matters, including cases involving breach of contract, fraud, conspiracy, tortious interference, breach of fiduciary duty and the Uniform Commercial Code.

And our team brings to the table not only legal experience, but time spent in the financial services trenches. Robert R. Kaplan, for example, co-founded Carter Kaplan & Co., a

Richmond-headquartered investment and merchant bank. There, he headed the firm’s corporate investment banking practice while managing a municipal underwriting practice as well. He also co-founded the leveraged buyout sponsor firm Columbia Naples Capital, where he served as a managing director.
