Our Banking and Financial Services group attorneys represent providers of consumer and commercial financial services in all aspects of lending, forms, procedures, collection, lender liability, workout, foreclosure, bankruptcy, and compliance with Texas and federal laws and regulations.
We serve financial services providers ranging from community banks and credit unions to large multi-state holding companies and finance companies. We provide counsel on, and routinely prepare, consumer and commercial finance forms, and review and draft procedures. Additionally, we defend usury and consumer class action lawsuits.
Our clients rely on us to formulate, structure, and document the full range of consumer and commercial loans and other financial products. Our attorneys are actively engaged with clients, trade groups, attorneys, and regulators throughout Texas and the nation allowing us to anticipate issues and to craft creative proactive solutions. Our forms are constantly updated to provide efficient, cost-effective documents. The consumer loan documents and forms prepared by our attorneys are well respected by state and federal regulators.
Members of our Banking and Financial Services group regularly author articles and books, teach for state and national trade associations (such as IBAT and TBA), present continuing legal education for Texas and national attorney organizations, and provide training and materials for financial institutions, other law firms, and regulators. The "go to" treatise on Texas and federal credit laws, Usury and Texas Credit Laws, is written by a member of the group.
Members of our Banking and Financial Services group also address client needs in other practice groups, such as Real Estate, Bankruptcy and Creditors’ Rights, and Fiduciary Litigation.
