Mesa Verde Bank and Trust is a financial institution located in Albuquerque, New Mexico. It was originally represented by the law offices of Hamlin, Hamlin & McGill before taking the services of Kim Wexler.

History

Season 2 (Better Call Saul)

Kim tries to attract new clients to HHM after she has fallen out of favor with Howard Hamlin. The only prospect who returns her phone call is Mesa Verde's senior counsel Paige Novick, who seeks representation over the bank's proposed branch in Scottsdale, Arizona. Together they arrange a meeting between Kim, Paige, Howard, and Mesa Verde CEO Kevin Wachtell ("Rebecca"). The meeting is successful and HHM proceeds to represent Mesa Verde ("Bali Ha'i").

When Kim resigns from HHM to start her firm with Jimmy McGill, she initially reaches an agreement with Kevin and Paige in which Mesa Verde will be her exclusive client. In response, Jimmy's estranged brother Chuck calls a meeting with Kevin and Paige and persuades them to stay with HHM, at Kim's expense. To help Kim and get back at Chuck, Jimmy secretly makes copies of Chuck's Mesa Verde files and forges the address of the Scottsdale branch before it is mailed to the state regulator ("Fifi").

At the hearing before the New Mexico Banking Board, confusion over the address grinds the proceedings to a halt. Kevin and Paige are frustrated by the six-week delay resulting from the fiasco, as well as Chuck's insistence on blaming others for what is seemingly his mistake. Paige subsequently phones Kim to inform her that Mesa Verde will work with her from now on instead of HHM ("Nailed").

Season 3 (Better Call Saul)

Kim manages to correct the paperwork and move Mesa Verde's next hearing to a closer date, much to Paige's relief ("Mabel"). After a more successful hearing before the Banking Board, Kim informs Kevin and Paige about Chuck's allegations that Jimmy forged the Mesa Verde files before the previous hearing ("Chicanery").

Mesa Verde's new branch in Arizona goes through successfully on the schedule that they wanted through Kim's aid and they begin discussing with her another branch they want opened in Utah. Kevin Wachtell is also so impressed with Kim's work, that he refers a friend of his in Texas to her for legal help even with Mesa Verde's agreement with Kim to be her exclusive client.
