Commercial Litigation and ADR

Chapman’s Litigation Group attorneys possess broad and in-depth understanding of the financial markets — the participants in those markets, the products they sell, the regulations governing their business practices, and the level of risk they will accept — to put clients at ease during a time of crisis or uncertainty. Our litigation team appears before state and federal courts throughout the country. Over the course of our 100-year history, our attorneys have helped shape the law as it applies to financial market participants, with precedent-setting cases in consumer lending and retail banking. 

Clients. Chapman attorneys have experience representing nearly every type of financial entity, including many of the world’s largest financial institutions, community and regional banks, investment funds, finance and equipment leasing companies, credit card companies, servicers, and receivers. 

Practice Focus. Our attorneys are called upon to resolve a vast array of complex and novel claims lenders, investors, or trustees face over the course of conducting business. Given the depth of our experience across the financial services spectrum, our attorneys are prepared to advise clients on an optimal defense strategy tailored to fit each client’s specific goals. The scope of our representation includes:

Commitment to Value. Our commitment to value goes beyond just solving a problem. Chapman attorneys and our Practice Innovations team collaborate with clients to provide project management protocols to ensure efficient workflow and processes, knowledge management platforms to facilitate information sharing and accessibility, budgeting and pricing initiatives to improve cost predictability, and educational and training forums to share our market intelligence and insight with in-house counsel and business line teams. 

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). When beneficial to a particular situation, we present clients with ADR options, including court-sponsored or private ADR venues.
