Finance - Banking Attorney Job Description

Of all legal positions, the one most focused on money transactions may be a banking attorney. Such attorneys work with banks and their regulations, bank officials, or with those who are working with a bank. Deposit and trust accounts, credit card agreements, electronic banking, and so forth are topics a banking attorney would work with.

Success Stories

I was incredibly happy with the site. I thought it was very easy to use; had significantly more postings than any other site (or combination of sites); and provided a lot of useful information. (the number, and caliber, of job postings). Exactly what I was looking for – I have 5 years’ experience and was looking for a lateral move or an in-house position, and that’s exactly what I found!
