McGlinchey's Consumer Financial Services Litigation Group is a recognized leader among the nation's most respected financial services institutions.
Our litigation practice brings together a skilled team of more than 100 attorneys who represent every type of consumer financial services company, including national and state-chartered banks, finance companies, mortgage lenders and servicers, credit card issuers, automobile lenders, student lenders, community banks, thrifts, credit unions and insurance providers. Our experience includes hundreds of class actions in the past ten years in state, federal, and bankruptcy courts throughout the United States, and we manage multistate litigation portfolios for our clients. We oversee budgets and related bankruptcy cases, and defend clients against actions filed by third parties – e.g., purchasers and homeowner’s associations – who seek to eliminate or impair a client’s interest in real property through a court proceeding.
Lawyers in our Consumer Financial Services Litigation team reduce the amount of research time required to address complex legal issues by drawing on the experience of our firm’s consumer finance regulatory and compliance attorneys, who have detailed knowledge of state and federal agency positions. We have relationships with various agency personnel, and from time to time we request that these agencies assist or intervene on behalf of our clients in connection with litigation matters. In many instances, when it is more efficient, our regulatory compliance attorneys will assist in drafting motions, supporting memoranda, and other pleadings. By minimizing the amount of time we spend on research, we bring greater focus to the vital issue at hand – winning our client’s case.
As leaders in their field, members of our Consumer Financial Services Litigation team speak regularly at conferences related to consumer financial services litigation including American Conference Institute forums on residential mortgage litigation and regulatory enforcement, consumer finance class actions, and fair debt collection practices as well as panels sponsored by the Mortgage Bankers Association and the Consumer Finance Legal Conference.
