Managing Associate

Amber L. Kraemer

I get to know clients personally and professionally, to add value to their business and community.

My Approach

When I work with clients I take the time to get to know the business from a high-level perspective so I can understand and anticipate problems and craft solutions to fit the legal requirements but also the business goals and objectives. Particularly, representing community banks and smaller companies I get the opportunity to work with owners and families who are engaged and invested in the business and have broader goals of working to make their communities a better place, which is an inspiration and my favorite part about being an attorney. I advise community banks and companies in a wide array of areas, such as mergers and acquisitions, employment, business formation, contracts and corporate governance, as well as on banking-specific issues such as regulatory matters and third-party vendor agreements.

Some of the community banks and companies I work with have been around for generations, and everyone involved is very invested – literally and figuratively – in the organization. I also work to foster relationships with bank regulators, accountants and other parties that can provide value for clients that I work with.

Outside of work, I’m very close with my family, and love spending time with my nieces and nephews.
