Dispute Resolution for Financial Institutions

FPS specializes in advising financial institutions and financial services providers in matters involving actual or potential liability. Our attorneys review and analyze potential risks and develop custom-tailored options to minimize risks. FPS also defends clients in legal actions brought by individuals and in class actions.

Just in the recent past FPS worked on several such cases, in each of which a very large number of investors or customers were affected and had filed suit (for example, in the course of the insolvencies of Lehman Brothers, a securities information service, Phoenix Kapitaldienst GmbH, and several closed real estate funds). The same goes for major issues arising in connection with consumer loans (cancellations, service fees, related transactions, etc.). FPS has sufficient expertise to efficiently and uniformly handle such cases together with the client.

One of the reasons our attorneys are so highly regarded is that thanks to their many years of intensive work on cases involving malpractice liability of investment advisers, they offer not only first-rate legal advice, but also take into consideration business aspects when counseling clients.
