The Work We Do

We represent community and regional banks, state and nationally chartered banks, federally regulated financial institutions, specialty finance companies, investment banks, bank holding companies, broker/dealers and investment advisors, as well as other entities and individuals in the financial services industry.  As we continue to monitor and stay abreast of regulatory and litigation trends in the financial services industry, we have seen an increasing number of lawsuits filed against financial institutions alleging violations of consumer protection statutes, including:

  • Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA)

We regularly defend against these types of claims.  We also have experience representing individuals and entities in the financial services industry in a wide variety of other litigation matters listed below.  In addition to traditional litigation services, we offer specialized consulting, policy development and training to assist those in the financial services industry with regulatory compliance. Areas in which we have provided such services include:
