IOLTA participating institutions serve a worthwhile cause.


Prime Partners contribute to the well-being of their communities through their support for civil legal aid.

Prime Partners

Make your IOLTA account do more for civil justice by banking at a Prime Partner financial institution!

Prime Partners, listed below, are IOLTA participating financial institutions that go above and beyond IOLTA participation requirements by choosing to pay interest rates on IOLTA accounts that are at least 50 basis points (0.50 percent) higher than required under the Wisconsin Supreme Court’s IOLTA interest rate comparability requirement. Financial institutions with asterisks also waive all fees on IOLTA accounts. The additional interest results in more funding for civil legal aid in communities throughout Wisconsin and, in return, Prime Partners receive special recognition from WisTAF.
