Banking and Financial Services
From commercial banks and credit unions to leasing companies and borrowers, Rogers Towers represents a broad range of clients in the Banking and Financial Services industry. Financial institutions continue to count on us for representation in lender liability litigation, foreclosures, collections, special assets litigation, and other litigation matters.
Serving the Banking and Financial Services Industry
Rogers Towers is widely recognized as one of the leading law firms in Florida in the representation of banking and financial institutions, including commercial banks, credit unions, finance and leasing companies, thrift institutions, and insurance companies. For decades, clients have sought advice and representation from our attorneys in matters that include simple working capital and term loans, large and complex transactions, and everything in between.
Lender Liability Defense
Our firm represents financial institutions in lender liability matters including those involving alleged violations of federal and state consumer protection statutes, fraud, predatory lending, tortious interference, breach of contract, and breach of fiduciary duty. Our banking litigation attorneys have successfully defended numerous lender liability actions in both state and federal court. In addition to defending against such claims, we also analyze lender's practices and forms and provide client education to mitigate the risk of future litigation.
Rogers Towers has vast experience in litigating foreclosure cases, from complex, multi-million dollar commercial loans to small residential matters. Our attorneys have the expertise to guide our clients through each step of the process, from preparing demand letters that comply with the myriad consumer protection regulations to obtaining deficiency judgments in favor of our clients following a successful foreclosure sale. We will do whatever is necessary to protect our client’s interests throughout the foreclosure process, including ensuring the collection of rents, having a receiver put in place to manage the property, and challenging claims by junior lienholders or homeowners’ or condominium associations.
When the litigation is over and we have successfully obtained a money judgment in favor of our client, our work doesn’t stop. Our experienced attorneys stand ready and willing to turn that judgment into real dollars for our clients. Rogers Towers has the tools and expertise to aggressively pursue collection in the most cost-effective manner possible, to maximize recovery for our clients.
Special Assets Litigation
The experienced attorneys in our Special Assets Practice Group bring a multi-disciplined approach to representing lenders, developers, and investors with troubled loans, loan portfolios and distressed properties.
Such representation includes representing lenders in the negotiation of loan workouts and forbearance agreements, as well as litigation involving non-performing assets, lender liability claims, arbitrations and bankruptcy proceedings. Our Special Assets Practice Group also has substantial experience in representing lenders in the sale of troubled loans and loan portfolios.
Members of our Special Assets team practice in the areas of creditors’ rights and bankruptcy, real estate, banking, land use, condominium law, and environmental law. Our litigation team has handled every type of claim a lender may experience in connection with a non-performing loan. In addition to litigation tactics and strategies, we negotiate loan purchase agreements or real estate purchase agreements for our investor clients. By doing so, we make sure our investor clients make well-reasoned decisions and take advantage of the current market to obtain properties at favorable prices. Such representation also includes thorough due diligence review and evaluation of loan documents, land use and zoning review, as well as review of the state of title, assessment of bankruptcy risks, assessment of condominium and homeowner association documents, and evaluation of possible liabilities arising under the condominium and homeowner statutes.
