Severson & Werson understands that lenders face close scrutiny in their relationships with borrowers who often respond to defaults with aggressive claims against their lenders. The attorneys in our Financial Services Practice Group are experts in this business—we understand the pressures and constraints lenders face and the difficult choices prudent lending and risk management require. We know that prevention is the best defense in these situations, and bring rare expertise to partnering with our clients in the work-out and remedial phases—aiming to avoid litigation entirely. If necessary, though, we know how to “teach” the lending business to judges and juries and present the lender’s good-faith perspective and we have done so successfully and repeatedly in courtrooms nationwide.
Over the last 70 years, Severson & Werson has single-mindedly designed and structured our practice to provide counsel and defense to financial services firms facing claims of lender liability—not merely case-by-case, but often on an issue-by-issue or enterprise-wide basis.
