We counsel various financial institutions, including banks, mortgage lenders, and commercial lending companies. We have successfully defended our clients in lender liability claims and other allegations of lender misconduct. We have prosecuted actions to recover unpaid obligations from principals and guarantors, foreclosure actions, and suits against borrowers for fraud.

Our litigation practice covers the full spectrum of complex litigation involving direct collateral and asset recovery, assignments for the benefit of creditors, bankruptcy, and breach of contract.

Representative Cases
We represent a Chicago-based bank in a series of direct collateral and asset recovery actions against the borrower. We are working with a turnaround consultant to identify, retrieve, and liquidate more than USD 2 million in outstanding inventory.
We represent the asset-based lending unit of a multi-national bank in its prosecution of a third-party action against the accountant and CFO of a defaulted borrower for fraud and negligent misrepresentation in financial reporting.
