Partnering with clients for cost-effective results

The Burns White Banking and Financial Services Group takes a business approach to serving our clients.

Our attorneys possess significant civil and commercial litigation experience representing a broad range of financial institutions in state and federal courts, and in private venues. This includes matters for alleged breaches of contract, disputes among partnerships and other business interests, alleged breaches of fiduciary duty, alleged conspiracy claims, claims brought pursuant to the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC), and many other types of statutory and common law claims.

In addition, we initiate and defend motions for temporary restraining orders, motions for preliminary and permanent injunction, and other emergency motions on behalf of various entities. Our work includes single plaintiff and putative class action cases.

Experience in all aspects of commercial financing

Burns White clients include national banks, federal and state savings associations, state-chartered banks, community banks, and various other financial institutions providing counsel in all aspects of banking law and practice, from structuring through documentation and closing. We handle loan workout, restructuring and collections, and loss mitigation, if necessary. Our attorneys counsel and assist institutions to resolve these problems cost-effectively, and achieve the best return available.

We assist with financial and managerial issues to help resolve situations quickly and effectively, assess value, propose solutions, structure to negotiate, and enter into the best and most cost-effective transaction available — to avoid and/or cure default. Moreover, we counsel our clients to implement the resulting operating plans.
