Jones Waldo Assists With Closing of Green Dot Corporation, Bonneville Bancorp Merger
In December 2011, Jones Waldo, together with Manhattan-based law firm, Davis Polk & Wardwell, helped Green Dot Corporation close its merger with Bonneville Bancorp, a Utah-based bank. Green Dot is one of the United States’ largest providers of bank-issued general-purpose reloadable debit cards. The merger involved banking regulatory issues and a multitude of complex corporate and shareholder issues. The Jones Waldo team included George Sutton (Bank Regulatory), Alexander Kennedy (M&A), Jesse Oakeson (M&A), Joseph Hinckley (M&A), and Tanya Sestak (M&A paralegal).
