Financial Services Litigation

Willenken lawyers regularly represent banks and financial services companies in a wide variety of commercial litigation.  Our attorneys have experience with all manner of lender liability claims, including claims against lenders based upon alleged unfair business practices, and claims based upon interest swaps and other derivative products, as well as letter of credit disputes.    In addition to the typical financial services litigation claims, our firm has also handled a number of unique banking litigation issues.  For example, in one case, on behalf of a bank, our firm brought an action claiming that a subsequent lender had wrongfully impaired collateral subject to our client’s security interest.  After protracted litigation, our client received a sizable settlement just before trial.  Other recent victories include obtaining summary judgment on behalf of a major national bank on claims for alleged violations of the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act, as well as a complete victory on demurrer on behalf of a major national bank on claims of fraud, breach of contract, and negligence.
