Banking Litigation

Banking Litigation

Knowledge, experience, tenacity and responsiveness are the hallmarks of Saiber’s banking litigation practice group. Our lawyers represent banks in pre-litigation and litigation matters, and provide counsel and advice to help them avoid disputes.

We have extensive experience litigating a variety of banking matters, including actions arising from or relating to negotiable instruments and check collection governed by Articles 3 and 4 of the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC); electronic fund transfers under Article 4A and other related statutes and rules, including the Electronic Fund Transfer Act and National Automated Clearing House Association Rules; commercial and standby letters of credit under Article 5, UCP 600 and ISP98; documents of title under Article 7; and lien priority disputes under Article 9.

The banking litigation group is also well recognized for its expertise in discovering and recovering assets diverted through various forms of fraud, defending  lender liability claims, and the handling of inter-bank disputes, securities transfer and reorganization claims, creditors' rights issues, bankruptcy matters, securities arbitrations, workouts, and foreclosures of commercial and residential property.

While our lawyers always seek to resolve matters amicably, without litigation, there are times when litigation is unavoidable. We are aggressive in asserting the rights of our clients, and have substantial trial experience in state and federal courts in New Jersey, New York and other jurisdictions.
