Brooks Bossong focuses his practice on banking law, creditors' rights, special assets and commercial litigation. He represents a wide variety of financial institutions and business lenders in the workout and restructuring of troubled debt facilities.

When restructuring is no longer a viable option, Brooks handles the prosecution of debt and collateral recovery, including bringing suit in state or federal court, handling foreclosures (as trustee or as lender's counsel, with significant experience working with complex servicing and participation agreements), handling the domestication and enforcement of foreign judgments, representing the lender in federal forfeiture proceedings, pursuing prejudgment remedies such as attachment and replevin/claim and delivery, and pursuing post judgment supplemental proceedings. Brooks assists clients with loan modifications and loan sales. He also regularly advises lenders/servicers on state and federal compliance issues including, within the consumer context, compliance with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's rules relating to mortgage servicing, early intervention, and loss mitigation procedures.

Brooks has considerable experience in state and federal courts, including trial and motions practice, appellate advocacy and bankruptcy practice.
