The financial industry speaks its own language. We assist with discovery requests to assure that your document requests are accurate and comprehensive.
Appropriate Standards of Care
Normal and customary standards of care are important elements in commercial litigation. Our inside knowledge of financial institutions will assess the strength of internal operating procedures and process.
Anti-Money Laundering Risks
Anti-money laundering statutes create an entirely new level of operating risk for financial institution. We have provided expert witness services involving complex money laundering and Ponzi schemes.
Lending Process Controls
Lending is a core banking activity and is often the root cause of litigation actions. We understand lending processes -- from Credit Analysis to Renewals to Loan Servicing. We also know where, and how, things can go wrong.
Problem Loans/Lender Liability
Problem loans create commercial disputes. We have extensive experience in loan workout strategies and tactics. We know how banks operate and understand Lender Liability risks which often arise in these situations.
Deep Lending Experience
Revolving Lines of Credit, Owner-Occupied Mini-Perms, Speculative Builds, A&D Lending, and Vertical Construction Lines. We know Lending, and how it should be done in a banking environment.
We are forensic experts in the area of residential mortgage loan fraud. Straw buyers, over-appraisals, and escrow officer fraud -- we know how to read the paper trail and find it.
Damages claims often hinge on expert witness testimony from trained economists, who often wildly overestimate the ability of the business to afford such claims. Rebuttal testimony based on "real world" lending experience is often the only "firewall" against devastating damages claims.
