Financial Services

Wheeler Trigg O'Donnell lawyers have represented a variety of companies in the finance industry. These include banks, credit card companies, insurance companies, consumer finance companies, stock brokerages, and investment funds. We guide these entities through complex litigation matters arising from the conduct of their core business or in connection with their activities as investors. We have a particularly strong practice in class actions cases, having handled cases involving securities fraud, "blast" faxing, pricing and service charges, customer service and quality pledge programs, and employment.

In addition to our strong class actions practice, WTO lawyers have handled other claims for financial services entities, including disputes related to:

  • Professional liability
  • Directors' and officers' liability
  • Lender liability
  • Securities fraud
  • Investigations
  • Broker-dealer liability
  • Commercial contracts
  • Employment
  • Trademarks
  • Collections
