Financial Services Litigation
A core focus of Pillsbury’s litigation practice is the representation of financial institutions. Our team combines industry-specific dispute resolution experience with strong working relationships with regulatory authorities to represent financial institutions in the U.S. and around the globe.
Given the nature of financial institutions and their business, the complex matters that arise frequently cross categories and require our experience in a variety of areas. We help resolve these disputes on favorable terms, consensually through courts, arbitration or other means of dispute resolution. In addition, in working closely with other attorneys at the firm, we also assist in connection with related matters such as internal investigations, bankruptcy and government inquiries.
These matters range from disputes with customers, regulators, and counterparties that arise out of day-to-day business dealings, to matters resulting from an institution’s change in business strategy or focus. Our clients also face issues that result from outside party actions or market forces, where they may become secured or unsecured creditors, or somehow caught up in complex fraudulent schemes. Our litigators also counsel clients in multifaceted controversies that extend outside the courtroom and involve sensitive legislative, regulatory and reputational issues often in more than one jurisdiction.
When historic events have affected our clients’ businesses, we have assisted them in resolving these matters.
