Wisconsin attorneys' banking relationships matter.



Through the cooperative efforts of the legal profession and the banking industry since IOLTA began in the early 1980s, hundreds of thousands of Americans have been served by the legal aid, access-to-justice and law-related education programs supported by IOLTA, nationwide.



IOLTA participating financial institutions

The Wisconsin Trust Account Foundation, Inc. (WisTAF) works closely with financial institutions to verify their status as “IOLTA participating financial institutions” in the Interest on Lawyers’ Trust Accounts (IOLTA) Program and assist in aligning with the rule governing IOLTA accounts.

Per Wisconsin Supreme Court Rule 20:1.15, an IOLTA account must be held at a financial institution that pays interest rates on IOLTA accounts that are at least as high as the rates they pay to non-IOLTA customers holding accounts meeting the same minimum balance and other requirements.   

Below is the alphabetical list of financial institutions that are currently eligible to hold IOLTA accounts in Wisconsin. Any financial institution or attorney with questions is encouraged to contact WisTAF at (608) 257-6845 or toll free at (877) 749-5045.
