An interview with Smith was published and included the following question:

 What’s the most exciting thing happening in banking and finance?

“For lawyers, it is the myriad challenges facing the industry and our ability to serve as value-added resources. At Vorys, we continue to find ways to partner with our banking clients in order to help them through the challenges they face so that they emerge stronger and more viable than before. But while exciting in a professional sense, these challenges pose a real threat to the industry. Bankers continually struggle to find time to conduct business while dealing with the issues and uncertainties confronting them.”
