In today’s challenging economy and era of heightened financial services regulation and oversight, financial institutions face an increased risk of exposure to litigation when credit is denied or when a borrower experiences difficulty in repaying a debt, as well as more frequent interaction with federal regulatory bodies.
The attorneys in the Financial Services Litigation Practice Group of White Arnold & Dowd P.C. have extensive experience representing banks, other financial institutions, and individuals in a variety of matters relating to consumer and commercial lending practices, regulatory matters, and institutional failure.
We have successfully defended cases involving mortgage fraud, RESPA, and Truth-in-Lending Act claims filed by consumers, as well as claims alleging violations of the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, and the Alabama Consumer Credit Act. White Arnold & Dowd P.C. has guided clients through negotiations and interactions with and appearances before the Securities and Exchange Commission and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, and in Federal Reserve Board matters, as well as litigation involving administrative, regulatory, and oversight agencies.
Our attorneys are also experienced in defending and pursuing actions involving commercial loans, such as loan fraud, “straw borrower” arrangements, bad faith denial of credit. Our capacity to manage electronic discovery is particularly useful in complex cases involving third-party claims of lender liability.
We are also equipped to defend banks and trust officers in matters involving claims of breach of fiduciary duty, including those claims arising out of trust and estate administration. Our representation of clients in financial services litigation extends to financial institutions, brokers, and investment advisers facing allegations of breach of fiduciary duty under both state and federal securities laws.
