Lender Liability | Fifth Edition | The leading one-volume work on the subject


Managing partner A. Barry Cappello wrote the first treatise on the subject, Lender Liability, now in its fifth edition. The fifth edition has been completely updated and reflects evolution and maturity of lender liability as an accepted, cited and well-litigated area of commercial and consumer litigation. As a body of law, it has evolved from traditional contract and tort theories, to include causes of action based in the Uniform Commercial Code; including the covenant of good faith and fair dealing.

A handy reference work, Lender Liability is ideal for either the experienced practitioner or the neophyte involved in representing an institution or client whose interests involve bank liability.
