The mission of Sones & White is to strengthen communities by serving community banks and businesses. We do this through our consulting firm, Sones & White Consulting, LLC (SWC), and our law firm, Sones & White, PLLC.
SWC is a leading Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) consulting firm for banks, representing over 40 community banks nationally. We assist them in understanding the unmet financial needs in their markets and developing strategies to meet those needs. We also help them access and leverage funding programs designed to incentivize financing and development activities in distressed or underserved communities. Over the last seven years, we have helped CDFI bank clients obtain $40 million in grant funding.
In our law firm, we assist community banks and local businesses with the full range of corporate, transactional, and regulatory matters. We also look for opportunities to partner with likeminded banks and businesses to serve as their outside general counsel and trusted advisor. Our attorneys have over 30 years of experience handling business matters across a broad spectrum of industries, and our research and administrative staff offer decades of experience in a variety of industries and pursuits.
