Womble Carlyle has over 500 lawyers to assist in Litigation, Class Action and Complex Litigation, Real Estate Transactions, Commercial Lending, Debt Restructuring, Intellectual Property, and Operations.
With more than 200 litigators across numerous practice areas, Womble Carlyle is particularly well-positioned to help insurance companies meet all their litigation needs, including:
Class Action and Complex Litigation
We have particular experience in complex business litigation and class action litigation. Our services include the Case Management Facility, FirmLogic (medical records collection and analysis) and BullDox Documents & E-Discovery Review. These litigation support services help clients control costs and improve efficiencies in large-scale litigation.
Real Estate Transactions
Life insurance carriers also rely on Womble Carlyle for real estate-related legal guidance, including buying, selling, developing and operating commercial and multi-family residential properties. We guide insurance companies through analyzing construction, architectural and engineering contracts. Team members also help insurance carriers with real estate financing, including structuring such vehicles as limited liability companies, partnerships, joint ventures and ground leases.
Womble Carlyle has nearly 30 attorneys firm-wide who represent major financial institutions, including life insurance carriers, in their commercial mortgage lending. Our attorneys have negotiated and documented virtually every type of traditional real estate financing, ranging from construction and bridge loans to permanent financing in a format traditionally offered by institutional lenders. Our attorneys also have extensive experience in real estate capital market products such as permanent financing originated for securitization by conduits, investment banks, banks and insurance companies, as well as products such as mezzanine financing (both preferred equity and debt). They are well versed in rating agency requirements related to special purpose entities, independent directors, non-consolidation opinions, insurance and escrow requirements, reporting requirements, defeasance, hyperamortization, environmental contamination, ground leased properties, mezzanine financing and credit tenant lease transactions. Our attorneys have closed loans secured by all property types including multifamily, retail, office, mobile home parks, nursing homes, hotels and industrial properties.
Womble Carlyle has a dedicated team of attorneys from multiple practice groups and offices who regularly assist life insurance carriers in effecting the repayment of debts and the recovery of collateral, often through the use of various creditor remedies, debt restructuring techniques, forbearance, and other loan workout transactions, foreclosures, litigation, and receiverships, and in working through bankruptcy liquidations and reorganizations. Our lawyers work expeditiously and collaboratively with clients to assess risk and maximize recovery.
In addition, we help life insurance carriers develop and protect many forms of intellectual property. Many life insurance carriers produce sophisticated products and need to protect these assets. We can help with preparing and prosecuting those copyrights, trademarks and patents, as well as by defending intellectual property in the event a dispute arises.
We also counsel life insurance carriers in state and federal insurance regulatory compliance, and help them in business operations, such as cybersecurity, records management, data management and privacy.
