Representation in All Types of Banking and Financial Services Litigation
A specific task a banking and financial services attorney will undertake is representing clients in disputes, such as lawsuits or arbitration proceedings, involving financial matters. In such cases, an attorney will work closely with the client to understand the nature of the dispute and develop a legal strategy to resolve it. For example, if a bank is facing a lawsuit related to alleged violations of consumer protection laws, an attorney would review the relevant laws and regulations, analyze the bank’s actions and policies, and develop a defense strategy aimed at minimizing the bank’s liability and protecting its reputation. In arbitration proceedings, the attorney would help the client prepare their case and present arguments to the arbitrator or arbitration panel. This might involve conducting discovery, gathering evidence, and drafting legal briefs.
In any legal dispute involving financial matters, a banking and financial services litigation attorney’s goal is to achieve a favorable outcome for the client while minimizing risk and protecting the client’s interests. This requires a deep understanding of the law, as well as expertise in financial matters and the ability to communicate complex legal concepts to clients and other stakeholders in a clear and concise manner.
The Most Common Causes of Action Brought Against Banks and Other Financial Services Providers by Their Customers
Among the most common causes of action where customers file claims against banks, and other financial institutions include breach of fiduciary duty, negligence, fraud or misrepresentation, and, for broker-dealers, suitability and failure to supervise claims. These claims can be brought before the courts or before a Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) arbitration panel when it is against a FINRA-regulated broker-dealer. Banks, in addition, face litigation brought by borrowers in some circumstances, such as where advances were contractually required, but a bank declined to make further advances under a credit facility.
