Prosperity Bank's General Counsel, Charlotte Rasche, Named Houston Corporate Counsel / Texas Law Book 2021 General Counsel of the Year for a Midsized Legal Department after nomination by Winstead


HOUSTON, TX – Winstead PC, a leading national law firm, today announced that the general counsel of its longtime client Prosperity Bank, Charlotte Rasche, Senior Executive Vice President and General Counsel, was named the 2021 Texas Law Book - Houston Corporate Counsel, General Counsel of the Year for a Midsized Legal Department.

The award was presented at an awards ceremony in Houston. This is the second year in a row that Charlotte and Prosperity Bank have been recognized at the Houston Corporate Counsel awards. 

“Charlotte is an outstanding general counsel and this recognition for her, and her team, is well deserved and we were thrilled to have nominated her for this award. In the midst of managing the second largest bank merger in Texas history, the pandemic hit and her team was charged with administering over 14,000 Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans with a combined value of more than $1 billion. This was a herculean task and they did an amazing job,” said Kathryn Blackney Oakes, a Winstead shareholder.

“Winstead has enjoyed a long partnership with Charlotte and her team at Prosperity Bank. They have done a tremendous job of integrating LegacyTexas, while continuing to offer the highest level of service to their clients. All of this during a once in a life-time pandemic. They are a world-class team and we are proud to work with them,” said Richard Leucht, a Shareholder and Chair of the Financial Services Industry Group.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
