joining Spencer Fane, Elizabeth was the general counsel, senior vice president and corporate secretary for a $9 billion publicly-traded bank with more than 130 branches, where she managed all legal, regulatory and compliance matters. This experience gave her an in-depth understanding of the internal operations of financial institutions.

She conducts more than 50 national webinars each year, as well as numerous specialized training sessions for financial institutions. She has published a 900-page legal resource book on Missouri business law through Thomson West Publishing Company.

Rodney Nichols is a partner in Spencer Fane’s Banking and Financial Services group and assists lenders with structuring, documenting and enforcing complex commercial and real estate loans of all types. With more than 20 years of experience, Rodney is able to help lenders and businesses alike navigate the intricate nature of commercial and real estate financing, including debt restructuring, workouts and reorganizations both inside and outside of bankruptcy.

He received national attention for successfully defending — in federal court — a financial institution whose online banking security systems were challenged following a fraudulent wire transfer.
