Banking & Financial Institutions Litigation

Banking and financial institution litigation have been a foundation of the Miller Nash Graham & Dunn practice over most of its 140-year history. We have represented and continue to represent some of the largest financial institutions and financial service entities in the United States and the Pacific Northwest region. These include banks, credit unions, investment banks, wire houses and broker-dealers of securities. We have also represented the federal government through the FDIC, RTC, and FSLIC. We have successfully litigated and tried a myriad of finance and financial institution matters, such as:

  • Lender liability defense
  • Class-action defense
  • Loan participation and syndication disputes
  • Actions arising out of letters of credit, commercial paper, and banking regulation transactions
  • Employment and labor disputes
  • Commercial and residential foreclosure actions
  • Banking insurance, borrower fraud, real estate, securities, antitrust, and contract claims
  • Banking investigations, loan fraud, fidelity bond, director and officer liability, and professional liability claims
