EKB Transfers Legal Knowledge to Grow Local Wealth
I’ve chosen to work with EKB, specifically Peter Brown, in many capacities for more than ten years”, says Shelley McDade, Chief Executive Officer of Sunshine Coast Credit Union. “The value they consistently provide to us is responsive, thoughtful legal counsel from someone who has taken the time to truly understand our values and our goals as a community credit union.”
Credit unions play an important role in BC communities, contributing to local economic and social development. As with other financial institutions, credit unions are facing increasing regulatory pressures, new competition and a compressed financial margin.
