Our Attorneys Have Been Representing Financial Institutions in New York City and Beyond for More than 160 Years

Cullen and Dykman has been devoted to serving financial institutions in New York City, the Tri-State Region, throughout the Northeast Region and beyond for more than 170 years. With clients ranging from local banks to the largest of multinational financial institutions, the breadth of our financial services practice is unparalleled among firms of our size in the region, and as one of New York’s oldest law firms, our firm’s accomplishments can be traced back for generations.

Financial institutions are the lifeblood of modern industry and commerce. Without lenders to take on financial risk and provide the capital necessary for large-scale business growth, construction projects, real estate investments and technological innovation, where would we be today? The opportunities that now shape our world would never have been brought to fruition, and many of the successes (both in terms of financial innovation and structural accomplishments) that we all take for granted today, might never have existed.

We remain leaders in providing unparalleled service and expertise to the financial industry group. From being at the forefront of the regulatory framework governing our financial to clients to being at the vanguard of leading-edge lending techniques and security, our services remain unmatched within the industry and at the most competitive of price points.
