It's More Than Just Compliance!

Bankers' Compliance Group® is known throughout California for advising, teaching and keeping its members informed about developments in legal and regulatory compliance matters.

Also available to BCG members and non-members alike is a full range of legal services for financial institutions.

Aldrich & Bonnefin* (counsel to Bankers' Compliance Group®) is available to assist financial institutions with all aspects of loan structuring and documentation, as well as loan workouts and collections. Our experienced attorneys assist clients with questions about various issues regarding both consumer, mortgage, and commercial loans ranging from regulatory compliance to due diligence and structuring. We offer assistance in all aspects of documentation, from providing sample language for a specialized provision, to providing customized documentation for all or a portion of a loan transaction.

In addition, we offer a series of generic forms that will supplement most computer-generated documentation systems. Our form documents are designed to provide flexibility, that may not be available from an automated system, often needed in order to customize a document for special terms and conditions required for a specific transaction. We also offer assistance with setup and training for automated documentation systems.

Aldrich & Bonnefin* also provides legal and regulatory support in connection with all areas of banking operations and financial technology (fintech) services. We advise clients regarding regulatory compliance issues involving banking operations, including Regulations DD, CC and E, and prepare customer-facing account disclosures, account agreements and other documentation related to banking operations. The firm's unique involvement in “on-the-spot” telephone support to clients for immediate preventive advice provides reduced risk and promotes early resolution of operations claims and disputes.
