Chadbourne’s banking and financial services litigation practice represents domestic and foreign financial institutions in all aspects of litigation, with an emphasis on creditors’ rights.
We have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for our clients on defaulted financings, and have been involved in a number of major real estate foreclosures. When borrowers assert lender liability and related claims, we draw on our considerable experience to successfully defend them. In fact, we have been litigating in this area for over two decades, originally during the height of the lender liability boom, and have defended lender liability cases in two leading states, Texas and California, and other lender liability-friendly jurisdictions.
Chadbourne also represents financial institutions in complex bankruptcy litigation, including the defense of avoidance actions and of claims for affirmative recovery by estate representatives. Our clients in these matters include US and foreign banks, private equity and hedge funds, mortgage originators and other credit providers.
We litigate very aggressively, if and when required. We handle creditors’ rights and lender liability litigation throughout the US and overseas, teaming with colleagues in our worldwide offices and with experienced local counsel.
