Regional and national banks and financial services companies, including some of the nation’s largest, rely on Burke, Warren, MacKay & Serritella’s Consumer Financial Services Litigation group to handle individual actions, class actions, mass actions, multidistrict litigation, and appeals.
Members of the group have experience in litigating a broad range of issues, including challenges to standing to foreclose; robo-signing; forgery; property inspection and preservation; loan charges and fees; TILA rescission claims; statutory pre-foreclosure notices; HUD requirements; loss mitigation efforts; loan modification; unauthorized endorsements and transfers under UCC Articles 3, 4, and 4A; as well as claims for violations of the federal consumer protection statutes (RESPA, FDCPA, FCRA, and TILA) and state statutes such as the Illinois Consumer Fraud Act. Our group includes experienced appellate attorneys who handle a significant volume of matters both prosecuting and defending appeals involving these issues both in state and federal courts.
Our group advises clients with respect to internal investigations, risk assessment, and counseling. We recognize that issues raised in individual actions can have significant repercussions when they spotlight portfolio-wide risks.
Members of the group have successfully defended banks and financial services companies in contested foreclosures, bankruptcy proceedings, and affirmative litigation throughout Illinois. We have also assisted clients with coordinating litigation in various states across the country, when there is a pattern of cases raising the same issue.
