Financial Services Litigation

Burke, Williams & Sorensen litigators have for many years represented state and national banks and other financial institutions with regard to commercial loans, real estate foreclosures, bankruptcy, securities processing, lender liability, deposit accounts, checks, wire transfers and other bank operations matters, factoring agreements, intercreditor agreements, and collections.  We handle financial services litigation in state and federal courts in California, as well as in Nevada and Arizona. In recent years, as claims involving mortgage loans and foreclosures proliferated, we have frequently defended our clients – often obtaining early dismissals – in borrower claims for wrongful foreclosure, fraud and misrepresentation, negligence, Truth-in-Lending Act violations, California’s unfair competition law, and state statutes involving lending and foreclosure practices.
