Financial Institutions

The issues facing financial institutions vary according to the type of practice. While professional liability is the major issue for financial institutions and service firms in today’s regulatory and litigation environment, a bank or mortgage lender can face liability over lending and foreclosure issues. A financial advisor can face claims that investments were unsuitable for the clients. Venture capital and private equity firms have their own special needs. In addition, privacy, cyber liability and identity theft affect financial institutions to a greater degree than other companies.

At the same time, we know that the majority of claims against financial institutions come from routine operations. A customer slips and falls on the floor. An employee injures someone in an auto accident.  We understand the need for this type of protection as well.
