Signature Bank Ranked #2 in Three Categories in NLJ “Best Of” Survey


Signature Bank was ranked second in the U.S. in three categories of the National Law Journal’s eighth annual readers’ poll on the best providers of services and goods to the legal profession. The categories include Best Business Bank, Best Private Banking Services and Best Attorney Escrow Services.

The annual survey polls the national legal community on the best products and services for their law office practices, including data technology products, banking services, litigation support and alternative dispute resolution providers.

The rankings were revealed in the March 2019 edition of the trade publication and reflect the votes of nearly 7,000 attorneys and other legal professionals. The voting process is purely democratic, and results represent the opinions of National Law Journal readers as well as members of the national legal community.

“Signature Bank continues to demonstrate its commitment to providing unparalleled client care and service to local communities. Law firms comprise a significant portion of our overall commercial client base of privately-owned businesses. We are honored to earn this prestigious ranking nationwide, which comes on the heels of being named the top bank in the same three categories of the ‘Best of’ survey by New York Law Journal. We appreciate that attorneys in New York and around the country took the time to cast their votes for Signature Bank, and acknowledge our efforts on behalf of their community,” said Signature President and CEO Joseph J. DePaolo.

Signature Bank is a New York-based full-service commercial bank with 31 private client offices throughout the New York metropolitan area and Connecticut as well as San Francisco. Its specialty finance subsidiary, Signature Financial, provides equipment finance and leasing.
