The Bank Account is a podcast series produced by Bryan Cave’s Financial Services lawyers. Each week, they bring a fresh perspective to a banking industry-related topic. If you’re a banker looking for regulatory insight to help you stimulate growth, a bank board member seeking the latest governance recommendations, or just an interested listener wanting to keep up with market trends, we will have an episode for you.

In the first episode of The Bank Account, co-hosts Jonathan Hightower and Rob Klingler, partners in our Atlanta office, discuss the outlook for bank merger and acquisition activity. Jonathan and Rob cover the key variables that could make 2017 an interesting year in bank M&A.
