Profile

Ben Perry represents clients at the trial and appellate level against a wide variety of claims in state and federal courts. Ben’s practice primarily concentrates on complex civil litigation, products liability defense, and representing financial institutions and mortgage companies in civil litigation. As part of the Financial Services Practice Group, he defends mortgage servicers, investors, and related entities against numerous state and federal law claims arising out of lending and loan servicing practices, including alleged violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and various claims relating to the sale of bank-owned real estate. Ben also has substantial experience defending banks and investors in hundreds of cases related to homeowner’s association (HOA) superpriority liens.

His experience also expands beyond the realm of mortgage servicing. Ben has counseled clients throughout the acquisition of a healthcare practice by a corporate entity and advised a client on various intellectual property issues related to the use of a famous musician's name and likeness, including negotiations with the city regarding oversight and management of a museum dedicated to the musician.

Ben also advises clients on various regulatory and compliance issues, including the handling of loans in bankruptcy and complex anti-money laundering (AML) statutes, as well as the potential Wire Act implications of processing and acceptance of funds related to various forms of gambling (or, more precisely, wagering of money in “games of skill").

Ben recognizes that comprehensive compliance and strategic initiatives on the front end remain the most cost-effective business approach. Nonetheless, Ben is prepared to tap into his litigation arsenal when necessary to defend his clients' interests, while continuing to think outside the box for solutions to resolve litigation in its early stages where possible.
