Helping lenders when liability looms
We help a wide variety of lending institutions. National banks, state banks, credit unions, savings and loans as well as specialty lenders and insurance lenders turn to us when they face claims from borrowers.
Our team has represented lenders in a wide variety of cases, including some in which plaintiffs have advanced unusual and creative theories of liability. These include:
- A lender sued for more than $30 million when a time share developer sought damages after the development failed
- Two insurance companies sued in federal court by a developer who claimed the administration of the loan ruined a business opportunity involving what, at the time, would have been South Carolina’s largest mall
- A state chartered bank accused of enabling a trustee to make poor investments by making loans, therefore enabling fraud and other improper conduct by the trustee
- A lender, foreclosing on a borrower in a bankruptcy case, who faced claims that it illegally induced the borrower to invest in a hotel property
- Automobile financing lenders who faced lawsuits from hundreds of car buyers claiming an auto dealership defrauded them into buying cars
