Settlement of Bank Fraud Counterclaims

December 2013

The firm represented borrowers who were sued by a large, regional bank. The firm filed counterclaims against the bank for fraud, wrongfully declaring the loans in default and foreclosing on the property securing the loans. After taking numerous depositions of bank officers and employees, overcoming an extensive motion to dismiss, and making arguments against summary judgment motions filed by the bank, the firm negotiated a favorable settlement on behalf of the clients worth several hundred thousand dollars.
