Profile

Hall Eady is a commercial and financial services litigator. For financial services companies, his practice includes defending against borrower and customer-driven claims, and providing advice regarding recoupment options, including lien rights, closing errors, title insurance, mortgage insurance and correspondent/broker agreements. He has served as the firm’s lead relationship attorney for several large financial services companies over the years with a focus on the delivery of consistent and high-quality legal services at competitive rates. Hall prides himself on listening closely to the needs of his clients and helping his clients identify the best solution for their specific and tailored legal needs, which can include anything from a single borrower lawsuit to a class action to regulatory and compliance issues impacting the operations of the company. His curiosity and genuine concern for his clients is the driving force behind his practice and experience.

For commercial clients, Hall’s practice includes representing businesses in contract negotiations, general commercial and contract disputes, insurance claims, business owner disputes, real property disputes and claims against professional service providers including insurance brokers. Hall also has represented several construction companies in contract negotiations and against large claims of defective construction and has familiarity with the legal issues impacting construction-related businesses. He has been named as one of The Best Lawyers in America® since 2015 for Commercial Litigation and has more recently been recognized with the same distinction for Real Estate Litigation.

Hall also regularly represents businesses in pursuit of affirmative recoveries, including insurance, breach of contract, and claims related to professional duties owed to these companies. He enjoys this plaintiff’s part of his practice and has been appointed to the American Bar Association’s Tort Trial & Insurance Section’s standing Plaintiff’s Practice Committee and also has served as the Plaintiff’s/Policyholder’s Vice-Chair on the Title Insurance Litigation Committee.

While companies generally prefer to avoid litigation -- and Hall agrees with that sentiment -- he knows there comes a time in the life of most companies when the only real choice is to pursue claims. Hall has the necessary experience to help his clients critically evaluate the litigation option as the claimant.
