BankBryanCave.com Turns 3!

BankBryanCave.com Turns 3!

October 27, 2011

Authored by: Robert Klingler

On Monday, October 27, 2008, as the TARP Capital Purchase Plan was still very much in formation, BankBryanCave.com was launched.  As we noted in our launch announcement, at that time the banking world was “being changed daily by forces outside our control and in ways unimaginable just months ago.” I don’t know that any of us had the foresight to think that three years later we would still be dealing with many of the same outside forces, but we’ve enjoyed the opportunity to continue to share our insights as we go forward.

As the parent of a human two year-old, I’m quite happy to at least have this site exit its “terrible twos.”  The site encountered some growing pains last year, but we’ve changed hosts, changed look, and driving forward.

Since its launch, BankBryanCave.com has hosted over 127 thousand visitors, and has delivered 277 thousand page views.  Included in those visitors are a significant number of bank regulators and policy makers, including over 900 visits from the FDIC, 360 visits from the Treasury Department, 350 visits from the OCC, 290 visits from the US Senate, 260 visits from the U.S. House of Representatives, 160 visits from the Federal Reserve Board and 140 visits from the U.S. General Accounting Office.

As we noted in the beginning

There is no fee of any sort connected with this site or its usage – it is another example of the many ways we try to give back to the industry that has been so good to us in so many ways. We hope you expect this kind of effort and contribution from us, since we have always considered our clients to be our partners in our industry. We hope you will continue to look to us in good times and bad.

A central premise of our financial institutions group is that sharing information collected from all of our attorneys creates significant intellectual power and value for our clients and each other.  We look forward to continuing to share.

New Page Focused on Dodd-Frank Act

New Page Focused on Dodd-Frank Act

September 23, 2010

Authored by: Robert Klingler

In an effort to make it a little easier to find information about the Dodd-Frank Act, we have created a new page on BankBryanCave.com that highlights our best summaries of the Regulatory Reform Act and also provides copies of several of the presentations that Bryan Cave has given on the Act.

The latest and greatest information will continue to be posted directly on BankBryanCave.com, but if you’re looking for quick overview of the Act or easy links to our most popular posts on Dodd-Frank, please check our our new Dodd-Frank page.

BankPogo.com is now Bank Bryan Cave

In light of the merger of Powell Goldstein LLP and Bryan Cave LLP, effective January 1, 2009, BankPogo.com has a new name,  a new domain, and a new look.  The site is now called, simply, Bank Bryan Cave, and can now be reached at www.bankbryancave.com.  We think the new look will make it even easier for visitors to find the information they are looking for, while also increasing the speed of the site.

Despite these changes, the most important things are not changing.  The site is still being written by the same attorneys; and we still plan to focus on providing up-to-date information, written in plain English, on the Troubled Asset Relief Program, the Temporary Liquidity Guarantee Programs, and other items affecting community bankers.

As we complete the transition to Bank Bryan Cave, there will potentially be technical hiccups, and you may encounter a broken link, or other problem.  If you notice a problem, or simply have a request, please send us an email.  If you’ve previously bookmarked the site or subscribed to receive updates by e-mail (see the “Subscribe” button on the right hand side of the page), then you don’t need to anything, as they will continue to work.
