Bank for Trial Lawyers in Brooklyn

Posted by pbsweeney on October 10, 2006

Court Street gets a legit money man. This story caught our eye in The Brooklyn Papers:

Last week, Esquire Bank, the first bank in the country to specialize in serving trial lawyers, opened on Court Street, between Livingston and Joralemon streets, in the center of Brooklyn’s legal district.

“Trial lawyers have unique needs,” explained Richard Bieder, an investor in the bank and a former governor of the Association of Trial Lawyers of America, as he stood in a crowd of pinstriped suits, bald spots, and gray ponytails at the bank’s opening on Sept. 28.

“We need loans to keep moving a case forward, to hire experts, to help us through the ups and downs of law firms. That’s what titillates me about this idea.”
