Financial Services

Thorpe Shwer’s attorneys have extensive experience in providing comprehensive legal services to clients in the financial services and payment processing industries, including banks, third-party payment processors, independent sales organizations (ISO’s), resellers, and other industry participants. We assist our clients with regulatory actions and compliance, matters involving consumer products and services, defense of abusive or deceptive trade practice claims, and the myriad of legal issues that arise from electronic fund transactions, payment processing, credit card processing and ACH transactions.

Our work for clients in the payments and financial services industries includes litigating high-risk civil and regulatory actions in state and federal courts throughout the United States. Our litigators are prepared to pursue and promote our clients' interests aggressively. We are also creative and have substantial experience leveraging cases for a negotiated resolution when it is in the best interest of our client. We strive to closely understand our clients’ goals and their businesses to better assist them throughout the litigation process, including selecting and implementing the most cost-effective form of dispute resolution possible. We are keenly aware that one size does not fit all when it comes to business or resolving disputes for our clients.

In addition to litigation, we also assist our financial services and payment processing clients with contract review and drafting, regulatory compliance, and enhancing their due diligence and risk management programs.

Our attorneys are frequently recognized as industry leaders by their peers, clients, and various legal and business publications, including the 2015 and 2014 editions of Super Lawyers® for Civil Litigation-Defense, Business Litigation, General Litigation, and Personal Injury General-Defense; and the 2014 edition of Martindale-Hubbell®’s Arizona’s Top Rated Lawyers for Litigation and Personal Injury.
