Whether enforcing their rights as creditors, defending lender liability litigation, assisting in extending debt, or providing advice on regulatory and operational matters, we help clients navigate the legal issues confronting parties operating in the financial services and banking industry.
We work with banks and thrift institutions, real estate developers, utilities, water and energy companies, governmental and public agencies, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), and leasing and finance companies. They turn to us for help with their financial transactions, RESPA and TILA compliance, secured and unsecured debt placement, loan workouts, commercial lending documentation, defeasances, and securitizations.
Our litigation experience extends to virtually every type of dispute facing financial institutions. We handle lender-liability actions, bankruptcy proceedings, foreclosures and foreclosure-related litigation, as well as litigation arising out of secured and unsecured loans, receivership litigation and securities violations, and antitrust claims.
We represent the FDIC and banks in director and officer liability litigation in a variety of complex matters requiring intimate knowledge of regulatory laws. We also represent global and regional banks in commercial lending transactions, loan workouts, loan forbearances, defeasances of CMBS loans, loan modifications and all facets of real estate and asset-based secured lending.
