Banking & Financial Services Litigation
Berger Singerman represents lenders, loan servicers and financial services companies in connection with commercial litigation and the defense of consumer and regulatory claims in state and federal courts. The Firm handles matters related to consumer and mortgage lending, lender liability, mortgage securitization, deceptive trade practices and state and federal statutory claims, including matters involving RICO, FDCPA, TILA, WARN Act, ECOA and False Claims Acts.
Our experience includes high profile and high-stakes litigation, including the defense of class actions and claims brought by state and federal regulators. The Firm also represents bankruptcy trustees and receivers of failed businesses in connection with the recovery of monies that are the subject of fraudulent transfers and Ponzi schemes. In doing so, we work hand in hand with Berger Singerman’s Internal and Corporate Investigations and Compliance Group in connection with crisis response as well as pre-litigation planning and the development of unified strategies to respond to claims that often follow regulatory scrutiny.
Berger Singerman believes that its clients are its partners, and we take a responsive and transparent approach to its engagements. We recognize the burden and expense that complex financial services litigation presents, and we actively evaluate both the attendant risks as well as possibilities for resolution. We know that litigation is often unavoidable, and our team approaches every representation seeking to achieve the optimum result. The volatile economy presents challenges to our clients. Our team members deliver creative and effective business solutions and counsel to our clients.
