Financing helps firms thrive

"Civil cases usually take a year to ten years. The credit line that City National provides allows us to keep our doors open. City National Bank gives me the option to take on cases that I believe in and to do the right thing."Benjamin Schonbrun, Civil Rights Attorney

We're sensitive to your need for flexibility when you require cash to finance things like income leveling for partners, temporary operating expenses, and unique opportunities such as moving to a new space or making much needed leasehold improvements.

Personal financial goals for partners & associates

We're accessible

"When dealing with other major banks you're dialing 1-800-India. You can hear back from them in two days and if you finally get them they don't know what you're talking about. There is clearly a relationship between our firm and City National, from the top down."Barry Jackson, Executive Director, Davis & Gilbert
