In the post-financial crisis world, banks and other financial institutions are still grappling with increased government regulation, scarce capital and public distrust. To survive and be in a good position for the economic upswing, industry players must find buyers for their distressed debt, seek methods of organic growth and focus on specialized markets and customers.

Kilpatrick Townsend’s financial services attorneys have served hundreds of financial institutions across the country on a wide variety of transactional, regulatory, risk management and compliance matters. We have also represented large financial institutions, securities brokers, financing companies and consumer credit ratings companies in various legal disputes. Our litigation experience in the financial services sector includes defense of breach of contract and breach of fiduciary duty claims, securities law violation claims and individual and class actions arising out of consumer credit and credit rating disputes.
