Business success is just a phone call away
Personal injury attorney Aaron Watson started his law firm in 2016, and shortly after, it came time to also start a business banking relationship. He came to Synovus after being referred by a friend, and the relationship was born. Synovus has taken a proactive role in the Watson Firm’s growth over the past four years, providing Aaron with the resources needed to operate his payroll, maintain business operations, and even buy his own office space.
“I’ve met with Synovus on several occasions to explain my vision for my law firm and vision for our growth,” he says. The Watson Firm started in a very small office with just a handful of employees, but the team quickly outgrew its space as their clientele expanded. “I called my banker directly and said ‘I found a property and I’d like to buy it,’ and within 10 minutes, he faxed over a letter to the seller saying that I could afford it,” he says of the office space he currently occupies in downtown Pensacola. “It started with me simply making a phone call to my banker.”
And that line of communication runs both ways. Aaron says that his banker comes by his office periodically, adding that they also regularly chat via text and phone. His banker keeps him informed about new banking products that could be valuable to his business and offers tailored solutions to specifically meet his unique business needs.
"It’s good to have the backing of your bank through the ups and downs of business."
In spring 2020, one such solution was the Paycheck Protection Program. His banker reached out directly letting Aaron know how to apply for the loan and kept him updated every step of the way. “It’s good to have the backing of your bank through the ups and downs of business,” he says. Through the PPP loan and his Synovus line of credit, Aaron was able to protect his firm through the interruption in business caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Aaron says this was just another example of Synovus going above and beyond to make sure their customers are taken care of. The Watson Firm has quickly become a well known and respected brand in Pensacola, and Aaron values having a banking relationship with someone he can easily get on the phone so he can keep his business running smoothly. “I tell my clients they can get in touch 24/7, to call me when they need me,” he says. “And Synovus has done the same for me.”
