Atlanta Senior Counsel Walter Moeling has been selected as a Lifetime Achievement Award recipient by The Fulton County Daily Report. Moeling received the honor for his considerable contributions to the legal profession in Georgia.
For nearly 50 years, Moeling has been with Bryan Cave and its predecessor firm in Atlanta, Powell Goldstein. Moeling has counseled financial institutions on corporate governance matters, operational and regulatory issues, capital and acquisition strategies, board disputes and dissident shareholders, as well as other strategic decisions.
He has been recognized by Who’s Who in America. He has been ranked since 1998 in Best Lawyers, including as Best Lawyers’ 2015 Atlanta Financial Services Regulation Law “Lawyer of the Year” and as one of the top 10 lawyers in the state. He also has been featured annually in Chambers USA since 2003.
Moeling has served on the board of the Georgia Bankers Association (GBA) and for many years occupied the role of GBA’s general counsel. He has also been appointed as a state deputy attorney general in Georgia and neighboring Alabama over the course of his career to deal with particularly complex banking matters.
Moeling and 19 other honorees will be recognized on June 23 at an awards ceremony in Atlanta, Ga. The Fulton County Daily Report is an online and print publication that provides essential information about the legal profession to lawyers in metro Atlanta and the state of Georgia.
In acknowledging his appreciation, Moeling noted that “more than anything else, the award is a recognition of the great lawyers at Powell Goldstein and Bryan Cave, particularly in the Financial Institutions Group, who have supported me.”
