Home » Industry Experience » Banking and Financial Services

We have handled many types of banking disputes. Many of the firm’s attorneys are ranked as Super Lawyers or Rising Stars in this practice area, and the firm was recently selected by Corporate American News in the “Best Business Litigators – Arizona.”  We routinely represent lenders, hedge funds and hard money lenders seeking to recover loan proceeds. On occassion, the firm also represents borrowers in complex lending and security disputes. We do not write loan agreements–we litigate them.
