Burr & Forman

Consumer Finance Litigation & Compliance

Burr & Forman’s financial services team defends and advises banks, commercial and consumer lenders, credit card issuers, mortgage originators, mortgage servicers, finance companies, and debt collection/debt buying professionals, in class, mass, and individual actions throughout the country.

Our attorneys advise clients on all latest state and federal court opinions addressing the fields of mortgage servicing, credit cards, auto finance, retail consumer loans, debt collection, and other consumer finance industries, with a spotlight on federal consumer protection statutes. This includes the Truth-in-Lending Act, Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act, Fair Credit Reporting Act, Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, and provisions of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.

We also regularly defend against suits brought by various governmental entities such as state attorneys general and Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (“CFPB”) investigations.

Appellate Law
Our financial services team handles a wide variety of appellate matters in both state and federal courts, even if another law firm may have been involved in the original trial court decision.  Our team has an excellent track record in achieving favorable decisions from appellate courts and setting precedent to our industry.  Burr & Forman is at the forefront of mortgage litigation in Florida, where appeals from lower court decisions are prevalent.  

Auto Finance
Our financial services litigators handle auto finance claims for national and international financial institutions. We handle defense of state law claims involving wrongful repossession, intentional tort, and contract claims to federal claims alleging violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”), Fair Credit Reporting Act (“FCRA”), and Truth in Lending Act (“TILA”) as well as numerous other alleged violations of state and federal law.  Additionally, our attorneys are experienced in enforcing arbitration agreements contained in retail sales installment contracts
