Banking Litigation

Carruthers & Roth has a team of litigators with deep knowledge and experience in the banking industry. We routinely work with national, regional and community banks and other financial institutions – vigorously representing them in complex matters that can impact their reputation and profitability.

In those instances where a settlement would be advantageous to the strategic objectives of our client, we actively pursue all means to bring a dispute to a quick and effective resolution outside the courtroom. We also work closely with our Banking & Finance team to counsel our clients in how to build protections into loan documentation and financing deals so they will have a solid defense if those protections are violated.

To produce the best outcomes, we routinely draw on the expertise of our well-respected Banking & Finance team, and consult with our colleagues experienced in Commercial Lending & Secured Transactions and issues involving Bankruptcy & Creditors’ Rights, Lender Liability and other practice areas. We also work closely with litigators working in Business & Corporate, Commercial, Construction, Employment, Insurance Defense & Personal Injury, Intellectual Property, Medical Malpractice Defense and Title Claims & Disputes.
