Bank of America Background Information

Bank of America (BAC), is the largest commercial bank in the United States and the largest of its kind in the world. The company earned over $21 billion in 2006 and has a market capitalization over $200 Billion.

Through mergers and acquisitions, BAC’s commercial banking unit has become the largest issuer of credit, debit and prepaid cards in the world. BAC is also the largest commercial bank in the US, with 5,700+ retail branches and over 17,000 ATM’s across the United States. The U.S. banking operations contribute more than half of BAC’s total revenues.

Banc of America Securities LLC (BAS) is the investment banking subsidiary of Bank of America. It is registered as a broker-dealer through the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, and by all 50 U.S. states, and is a member of various securities exchanges including the New York Stock Exchange. The use of “Banc” in the BAS name is to indicate that it is not a bank and its accounts are not insured by the FDIC.

BAS is a full-service securities firm, which offers securities brokerage, research, trading, underwriting, financial advisory and other investment services. It claims to be the fastest growing investment bank on Wall Street, taking on such powerhouses as Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, Merrill Lynch, Morgan Stanley, and Lehman Brothers.

BAS’s sister company, Global Wealth and Investment Management (GWIM), is actually a combination of several firm which manages the assets of institutions and individuals. GWIM claims to be among the 10 largest U.S. wealth managers and, in July 2006, stated that its total assets under management exceeded $500 billion.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
"I am going to miss conversations with you, Sam Edwards. You’ve been a wonderful lawyer and a friend. I loved learning legal jargon from you. But, even more, it is your self respect and commitment to your position that I admire and your persistent patience-your equanimity. With great appreciation, thank you!" M.B.
★★★★★
"My experience with Ryan Cook has been very positive. Through every step of the litigation he explained what to expect to happen. When I spoke with him later he reviewed the process. He was very patient and I never felt rushed. I have already told friends how wonderful he is." L.R.
★★★★★
"I want you to know that I very much appreciate your expertise, hard work and guidance that led to a satisfactory resolution with Raymond James. From our first meeting, I felt "heard" and that my situation and story were respected. Every subsequent interaction I had with any of you - in person, via email or by phone - only corroborated that feeling. What great work you do on behalf of people like me who have been wronged, yet don't know how to navigate the appeals/mediation/arbitration process as you do. I will be forever grateful." M. L.
