Business solutions for law firms. Wealth solutions for partners.

Legal professionals have complex business and financial needs that extend beyond the typical banking relationship. Wells Fargo Legal Specialty Group helps meet these needs by providing access to customized solutions developed in collaboration with your firm and partners.

Years of hands-on involvement with the nation’s most successful law firms has given us a distinct perspective on law firm finances. From your simplest daily transaction to your most complex investment decision, our team’s deep industry knowledge and commitment to personalized service can help build and preserve your firm’s financial foundation.

A team built for your firm

A Legal Specialty Group relationship manager serves as a key strategic resource for your firm, coordinating a team of Wells Fargo specialists to help meet your specific needs.

Industry research

Four times a year, the Legal Specialty Group gathers and compiles law firm data into our Comparative Analytical Tool (CAT) including billable hours, revenue per attorney, profit, headcount, and trends by region and sector. CAT’s proprietary research methodology can help you benchmark your firm’s financial position, adjust your short- and long-term financial goals, and help ensure your firm’s longevity.

The resulting CAT reports, available exclusively to participating clients, provide an extensive, insightful narrative about the legal industry that can help you:

  • Adopt best practice revenue drivers and expense management techniques
  • Improve product development 
  • Plan to better meet your firm’s financial goals
