The Successful Lawyer-Banker Relationship offers guidelines on how lawyers with sole practices, small firms or mid-size firms can build mutually beneficial and effective banking relationships that are critical in helping any law firm become a more successful business. Topics covered include choosing a bank and banker, establishing creditworthiness, securing a loan, managing cash and trust accounts, and using merchant banking and other bank services efficiently.
