Lender Liability Expert Witnesses
Lender liability law protects the borrower, and mandates that financial institution lenders treat borrowers fairly. Lender liability encompasses breach of contract, fraud, conflicts of interest, misrepresentation, inappropriate control, failure to fund commitment, and other unprofessional lender activity. A lender liability expert witness typically has a background in commercial banking and commercial lending, real estate lending, foreclosure, forensic accounting, and/or mortgage banking. Cahn Litigation Services is the expert witness placement service provider of choice by law firm clients to locate expert witnesses that can support banking and financial services matters, including cases involving lender liability.
Representative matters that call for an expert in lender liability involve legal issues pertaining to:
- Bank operations
- Banking regulations
- Collections litigation
- Real estate
- Mortgage fraud
- Lending and lender liability
- Contract and documentation disputes
- Appraisal-fraud and underwriter misrepresentation
- Fiduciary duty

Representing the plaintiff or defendant, litigation support work by a banking expert witness could include document review, an expert report, expert opinion, deposition testimony, and/or courtroom testimony. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, legal counsel may request an expert with prior expert testimony experience. In addition, clients may seek a banking industry expert or financial advisor for pre-litigation consulting services.
While many experts have expertise in banking, loan, and lender liability issues, an expert witness carries the additional responsibility of providing testimony before the court in a manner whereby lay people can understand the litigation matters and evidence.
