Financial services litigation

Our financial services litigation attorneys understand the heavily-regulated environment within which banks and other financial institutions operate and the various types of disputes that can arise within the industry. We regularly litigate matters involving the Uniform Commercial Code, lender liability, and state and federal consumer protection statutes such as the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, Fair Credit Reporting Act, Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act, Truth In Lending Act and Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. We represent financial institutions of all sizes before courts and arbitration panels across the country. We also represent financial institutions in class actions and multi-district litigation. We work closely with our clients to develop strategies that best position them to win at trial or a beneficial negotiated resolution.
