HOUSTON, TX (PRWEB) October 27, 2015
J. Scott Sheehan, a shareholder with the international law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP, was recently elected as president-elect of the Texas Association of Bank Counsel (TABC) at its 39th annual convention in New Orleans. The TABC is the premier specialty bar association in Texas for both in-house counsel and outside counsel who represent banks and financial institutions.
“We are proud of Scott for serving in a true leadership role at this important industry organization,” said Douglas C. Atnipp, Greenberg Traurig’s Texas co-regional operating shareholder.
“I'm excited about my year-long assignment to spearhead the association's outstanding continuing legal education for its bank counsel members,” said Sheehan.
Based in the firm’s Houston office, Sheehan is a business lawyer with a national practice in banking and financial institutions, as well as consumer and commercial financial services. He is known for his issue advocacy and development of legal strategies for the banking and consumer finance sector, and co-authors the Texas Usury Law Handbook by West Publishing. Sheehan focuses his practice on legal and public policy issues and innovative solutions, including new product development, legal compliance, litigation, and issue advocacy in judicial, legislative, administrative, and arbitration proceedings. He currently serves as Chairman of the influential Texas Business Law Foundation and has been recognized by his peers as one of The Best Lawyers in America and a Texas Super Lawyer.
The Texas Association of Bank Counsel (TABC) was formed in July of 1976 to inform and educate Texas lawyers who devote a substantial part of their professional time to representing banks and other financial institutions. TABC is designed for bank lawyers who have a common interest in a specialized field of law. TABC is a resource for its members, allowing them to network with other bank lawyers who deal with similar issues. Members are encouraged to exchange information on transactional techniques and developments in the law, and to share ideas and concerns to enhance the knowledge and improve the skills of TABC counsel. TABC also provides members an opportunity to convene annually with lawyers who primarily represent banks and to obtain necessary CLE.
