Petersen Discusses Effect of New OCC M&A Review Proposal

Posted February 07, 2024

Kansas City Senior Attorney Mathew Petersen recently spoke with S&P Global Marketing Intelligence regarding the effect of the OCC's recent M&A review proposals on national banks' M&A appetite. Petersen observed that while, on its face, the OCC's proposal may not outweigh the economic benefits that drive M&A activity, any "significant delay or uncertainty in the application review and approval process" may discourage national banks from pursuing future deals.

As one of the nation's leading bank M&A advisors, Fenimore Kay Harrison has successfully advised clients on navigating the OCC's M&A application and review process.
