Financial Services Litigation and Regulatory Compliance
We regularly represent institutional and private lenders, loan servicers, substitute trustees, and attorneys in litigation to establish, enforce, and defend the validity of mortgage instruments, as well as the validity of the loans themselves. Such litigation includes foreclosure and other mortgage related claims in state and federal trial courts, as well as on appeal, including claims arising under TILA, HOEPA, RESPA, FDCPA, TCPA, FCRA, and ECOA; consumer protection lawsuits brought by private parties and state attorneys general; and related mass action and class action claims in state and federal court.
We have litigated hundreds of foreclosure related cases, many brought by borrowers seeking to preclude foreclosure and/or eviction, or attempting to raise foreclosure challenges post-sale. The firm is frequently brought in by other attorneys specifically to handle trials and appeals, and we have argued dozens of state and federal appeals in connection with mortgage related claims and foreclosure related challenges.
We also defend debt collection agencies and debt collectors in claims brought by consumers and others asserting violations of state and federal collection, including federal and state class action lawsuits.
We also advise on regulatory matters involving consumer financial regulation, including advising lenders and attorneys on state and federal compliance issues concerning consumer finance issues, and state and federal debt collection laws.
