Banking and Financial Services
In these economically turbulent times, banking and financial services providers need trusted advisors more than ever. Cosgrave helps clients navigate an ever-changing legal landscape and a complex array of state and federal regulations. When disputes arise, we offer strategic counsel, a strong team of litigators, and alternative dispute resolution experience, backed by in-depth knowledge of the financial sector and the Northwest region.
Clients from all corners of the industry rely on Cosgrave, including banks, mortgage lenders and servicers, mortgage brokers, credit reporting agencies, debt buyers, debt collectors, and financial services trade associations. We defend Wells Fargo Bank and Bank of America, for example, in cases asserting claims for wrongful foreclosure and violations of consumer protection statutes. We also defend Portfolio Recovery Associates and Midland Credit Management against claims for violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the Fair Credit Reporting Act. Additionally, we represent commercial financial services providers in prosecuting and defending foreclosure of commercial trust deeds and related security interests.
Our banking and financial services lawyers, led by a former Oregon Assistant Attorney General, are well versed in the Fair Credit Reporting Act, Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, Truth In Lending Act, Oregon Mortgage Lender Law, Oregon Unlawful Trade Practices Act, and other legislation impacting the financial services industry. We work in concert across practice groups to give clients seamless service, as well as forward-looking guidance on emerging issues.
