Banking & Financial Services Litigation
Partnering with our clients to achieve the most cost-effective results
With the industry facing some of the most sweeping changes in more than a century, we live in a time of financial, economic and business uncertainty.
To rise to meet these challenges, financial institutions – more than ever – need attorneys who understand their business and commit to working hand-in-hand with them to tackle their problems. With the industry landscape changing daily, adaptation, efficiency and unwavering support are as important now as they have been in recent memory.
In every instance, the Burns White Banking and Financial Services Litigation Practice Group takes a business approach to litigation. With a substantial and enduring commitment to understanding our clients’ businesses, we strategically focus all efforts toward achieving their goals in every case.
Our attorneys possess significant commercial litigation experience in state/federal courts and in private venues representing a broad range of financial institutions. This includes matters for alleged breaches of contract, disputes among partnerships and other business interests, alleged breaches of fiduciary duties, alleged conspiracy claims, claims brought pursuant to the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) and other types of statutory and common law claims. In addition, we have also initiated and defended motions for temporary restraining orders, motions for preliminary and permanent injunction, and other emergency motions on behalf of various entities.
Further, we represent financial institutions in loan workout, restructuring and related matters. Our attorneys counsel and assist the institutions to cost effectively resolve these problems and achieve the best return available. We assist with financial and managerial issues to help resolve situations quickly and effectively; to assess value; to propose solutions, structure to negotiate, and enter into the best and most cost effective transaction available — to avoid and/or cure default. Furthermore, we counsel our clients to implement the resulting operating plans.
Our clients include national banks, federal and state savings associations, state-chartered banks, community banks, insurance and oil/gas companies, and others.
We look forward to working with you. As a strategic partner for your business, we roll up our sleeves to help so you can roll yours down.
