Banking Expert Witness Case Study-Philadelphia

Banker/Borrower Lawsuit

The economy is good now, and bank loan portfolios are very clean, but in a year or three, we will see defaults begin to happen, and along with them, lawsuits.  In some cases, banks may obligate themselves to provide funding, then try to renege on the balance of funds when they see a deal going bad.  Many times, borrowers will be looking for someone to blame when their deal went bad, and the bank will be a convenient deep pocket.  In either case, there will be a need for counsel to represent plaintiffs and defendants.  Lee Tabas is available to help as an expert or consultant.
