Legal & Consulting Services

Kansas bankers consulting services

Kansas Bankers Consulting Services provides member banks with comprehensive compliance assistance and expert legal services. For many years, the KBA’s legal department served Kansas banks, but its services were limited to sharing information regarding laws and regulations. KBCS was established in 2011 as a way to provide legal services and compliance consulting to banks.

KBCS understands the banking industry better than most. Serving banks is all that we do.

what others are saying about kbcs

“Following KBA’s Account Documentation Seminar, which stressed the importance of careful review of Power of Attorney documents, we put together a system to review all existing POA documents. Going forward, this includes a review of all new POA documents received with the assistance of Kansas Bankers Consulting Services LLC. After completing a POA Checklist, the checklist and POA document are downloaded into the KBCS portal for review by the legal experts at KBA. They review these documents, and then share any concerns they may identify or they sign off on the checklist if everything is acceptable. My contact at KBCS does an outstanding job reviewing these promptly and is helpful in explaining any issues that he finds. The process to drop these into the portal and receive a timely response runs smoothly and efficiently. I typically hear back within 24 hours which allows us to get back with our customers promptly on whether or not we will accept the POA document. I highly recommend Kansas Bankers Consulting Services LLC.”
