Kevin J. Funnell, Attorney at Law
University of Denver
I have over 36 years of experience working with banks and other businesses on complicated business and regulatory matters, including business law, commercial transactions, financial institutions regulations, mortgage banking, Internet and electronic commerce, outsourcing, and information technology services. For most of the last fifteen years, I've worked with financial institutions and other companies on electronic commerce, data acquisition, management, and processing, information technology services, and developing issues related to the Internet. I have also served as an in-house counsel to a large financial institution and I understand complex business and legal issues from the perspective of the corporate legal department. I have safely guided boards of directors and senior management through legal and regulatory minefields, always with an eye to achieving practical, cost effective business solutions to some of the complex problems facing companies today. My past experience also includes extensive involvement in the acquisition, sale, financing, and restructuring of business entities and assets, particularly those related to financial institutions and mortgage banking. I am a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of the University of Kansas where I received a B.A. (With Distinction) in 1971. I received a J.D. from the University of Denver College of Law in 1974. I am a member of the Texas and Colorado Bar Associations. I am a frequent lecturer and author on matters involving the Internet, electronic commerce, technology services, and financial institutions. I'm also the author of the blog Bank Lawyer's Blog, which contains my personal views and commentary on issues related to banks and other financial institutions.
