Lender Liability Defenses

New Jersey Banking Law Attorneys handshakeThe New Jersey banking law attorneys at Snellings Law LLC have been representing small and large banks, leasing companies, mortgage and commercial lenders, financial institutions, thrift institutions and other financial product providers for many years. We understand how complex lender liability claims against these entities can be, and many actions brought forward in lender liability defense cases are done so under the notion that the lender owes some form of fiduciary duty to its client.

Common Types of Lender Liability Defenses

At Snellings Law LLC, we represent financial institutions involved in commercial litigation over the following types of lender liability allegations:

  • Commercial foreclosure issues
  • Bank or mortgage fraud
  • Predatory lending
  • Misrepresentation
  • Breach of contract
  • Breach of fiduciary duty
  • Bad faith claims
  • Usury

Advantages of Borrower Representation

Due to the knowledge and insight into the strategy of a lender liability defense, a New Jersey banking law lawyer who represents lenders may have a slight advantage should he or she come to represent a borrower. In these cases, the attorney will need to determine what duties the lender owed to the borrower and whether the lender broke or breached the trust or contract.
