Oliver Building Pittsburgh

We represent lenders, borrowers, banks, financial institutions, equity investors, corporations and other business entities in a broad range of financial transactions, creditor’s rights, bankruptcy cases, and lender liability and related litigation.

Whether working with small, large, secured or unsecured creditors or local, regional, national banks or other credit institutions, we have the breadth of experience necessary to provide clients with the most helpful and timely counsel – finding appropriate and cost effective business resolutions for both everyday financial matters and more complex situations.

Banking and Financial Services

We represent lenders and borrowers in the negotiation and documentation of all types of finance transactions-including secured, unsecured, asset-based, real estate, and construction loans. We represent financial institutions in the bundling and sale of loan portfolios, and entrepreneurs and business institutions in the acquisition of single and portfolio loans.

Creditor’s Rights, Workout and Bankruptcy

We represent national, regional and local banks, financial institutions, equity investors, mortgage companies and private and public corporations and other business entities in diverse bankruptcy and creditor’s rights matters. We have experience representing clients in out-of-court workouts, structuring and documenting of forbearance agreements, consensual sales, liquidations and loan sales. We also represent creditors in state court actions including receivership and custodial proceedings, in-court restructurings, fraudulent transfer actions, breach of contract and foreclosure actions. We represent secured and unsecured creditors in Chapter 7, 11 and 13 bankruptcy cases in matters involving plan confirmation, preference actions, free and clear sales, claim determination and debtor-in-possession financing.

Lender Liability and Other Litigation

We represent banks, mortgage companies, investors and other credit institutions in general financial institution litigation – including UCC, payment, dishonor, and other bank claims – and in lender liability defense litigation. The latter includes a broad spectrum of federal and state court claims, such as Truth in Lending (TILA), RESPA, HOEPA, UDAP, ECOA, predatory lending, and consumer fraud. We also represent financial institutions in defense of FDCPA, FCRA, TCPA, and other consumer protection claims. We have experience defending clients in individual and class actions brought in state and federal courts in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and throughout the United States.
