Neil heads the firm's financial institutions corporate and regulatory practice group, representing primarily financial institutions, fintech companies, and alternative financial services companies. He handles securities offerings, M&A, corporate governance matters, and regulatory matters. He is also the co-leader of the firm’s social impact and diverse financial services practice initiative and has been particularly focused in developing this initiative, which includes working with both for-profit and not-for-profit financial services businesses, including minority depository institutions and minority-owned fintech companies.

Neil has been involved in more than 300 securities offerings or M&A transactions, ranging in size from less than $100,000 to over $100,000,000, with a collective total deal value of nearly $6 billion.

Neil also is very involved with public education matters, including serving on the boards of the Institute for Child Success, Public Education Partners, and the South Carolina Student Loan Corporation (as co-vice chair of the board and chair of the foundation committee). He also serves on the advisory board of the Motley Fool Foundation, which is focused on disrupting the socio-economic status quo by breaking down the primary barriers for people who live paycheck to paycheck, in that they lack ample pathways and choices regarding important drivers of financial freedom such as housing, health, education, work, and money.
