We represent global financial services institutions in state and federal court, as both plaintiffs and defendants. We prosecute claims on behalf of our clients to enforce their rights under contract and applicable federal and state statutes. We also defend our clients in disputes alleging violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Truth In Lending Act, the Illinois Consumer Fraud Act, and other state and federal consumer protection statutes. We have extensive experience litigating claims involving breach of contract, breach of guaranty, fraudulent conveyance, the Uniform Commercial Code, lender liability, and other claims brought on behalf of, or against banks and lenders. We also advise our clients on their compliance obligations, litigation prevention, and other strategies to manage and avoid legal risk by keeping apprised of the ever-changing regulatory landscape governing the banking and lending industries. We have litigated high stakes, bet-the-company cases including those in which the potential exposure exceeded $1.5 billion. Brian O’Meara leads our Banking and Finance Litigation Group.
