Practice/Industry Group Overview
Kutak Rock’s Financial Services Group provides legal services to a wide range of financial institutions, including commercial banks, thrifts, credit unions, bank holding companies and finance companies, including defense of corporate officers, directors, board committees and other corporate representatives. These clients turn to our experienced attorneys, in both commercial and residential contexts, for assistance with receiverships, foreclosures, loan collections and workouts, and offensive and defensive litigation. Our attorneys have litigated claims involving lender liability and fraud, federal lending laws, bankruptcy, complex corporate disputes, securities fraud, class actions, government contracts, bid disputes, forfeitures and liens, the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC), RICO, state and federal whistle-blower and false claims actions, trade regulation, and loss of “supervisory goodwill.”
In addition to representing traditional financial institutions, Kutak Rock’s Financial Services Group also works with dozens of credit enhancers, issuers, trustees, servicers and others in disputes involving structured finance transactions. These complex transactions include asset-backed securitizations, housing finance deals, swap terminations and bond validation proceedings. Our team has appeared in state and federal courts across the country in sophisticated securitization litigation involving hundreds of millions of dollars.
