Long-regarded as one of the nation’s leading associations focused on the financial services industry, the San Francisco Bank Attorneys Association (SFBAA) has named Craig Miller its 2020 President. Consisting of in-house attorneys, outside lawyers in law firms, banking and venture capitalist attorneys, lobbyists, politicians and regulators who practice in the area of banking and financial services law, SFBAA has been providing valuable programming and resources for financial services attorneys since 1939.
Miller leads Manatt Financial Services and focuses his practice on representing public and private corporations in a wide range of corporate matters, including mergers, acquisitions, and public and private equity and debt securities offerings. He also regularly represents venture capital management companies and their portfolio companies in venture fund structuring, portfolio investments, capital raises and strategic transactions, including stock sales and asset sales. Miller also counsels both financial institutions and the underwriters and placement agents that service them on securities offerings, branch purchases and sales, and whole bank acquisitions, along with day-to-day corporate governance issues and periodic reporting.
SFBAA will kick off its 2020 programming with a January 6th lunchtime “fireside chat” between Miller and Manatt’s own Jan Owen, former Commissioner of the California Department of Business Oversight. Miller succeeds Hilary Gevondyan, Vice President and Associate General Counsel, First Republic Bank. You can read more about the SFBAA here.
