Finance law firm services
At Womble Bond Dickinson, our team of financial services lawyers have experience across a wide range of specific disciplines within finance and litigation law. This allows our litigation finance law firm, asset finance law firm and corporate finance law firm teams to provide in-depth and tailored services to clients from every corner of the industry.
As a team, we have extensive experience in structuring and negotiating a wide range of financial transactions, including bilateral and syndicated credit facilities, asset-based lending, equipment leasing and finance, and finance for real estate, acquisition, receivables, projects, trade and other structured finance. We regularly advise secured lenders and creditors on restructurings, workouts, bankruptcy filings, receivership appointments and foreclosures.
The comprehensive regulatory and compliance advice our finance law firm team provides helps our regulated and non-regulated clients avoid costly enforcement action and legal disputes whenever possible. However, when needed, we have sector-knowledgeable dispute resolution and litigation teams that regularly represent banks, mortgage lenders, insurance companies and non-traditional lenders in all types of dispute resolution (including US federal and state litigation), regulatory enforcement actions, and governmental investigations.
Our financial services lawyers are experienced in lender liability claims, mortgage-related litigation, US state and federal consumer finance litigation and investigations and troubled portfolio litigation strategy and management. Outside of these services, the Womble Bond Dickinson finance law firm team can also advise on institutional trust and breach of fiduciary obligations, regulatory litigation and compliance, interest rate swaps and derivatives.
