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. For commercial clients, his 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 has also represented a number of construction companies in contract negotiations and against large claims of defective construction. 

Hall has been named as one of The Best Lawyers in America® since 2015 in the Commercial Litigation category. This distinction recognizes the substantial work he has performed for corporate and financial services clients, including the successful negotiation and litigation of hundreds of real property and insurance claims. As the lead member of the firm’s Title Insurance Group, Hall has recouped millions of dollars for his clients. In New Jersey, Georgia, South Carolina and Florida, he has litigated the scope of closing protection letters for the benefit of lenders. He is also an active member of the American Bar Association’s Title Insurance Litigation Committee, where he gives an active voice to the policyholders’ perspective.

Hall’s goal is to help his clients reach an efficient resolution by providing early and updated assessments at each major step in the litigation process, which he has found helps his clients resolve disputes and focus their resources on what they do best – typically not litigating disputes. But, to be sure, Hall has tried cases successfully and enjoys the opportunity to help navigate his clients through trial and enjoys the challenges of formulating and implementing the best trial strategy with a constant focus on message, audience and delivery. His greatest sense of professional accomplishment is when he is able to distill and explain complicated factual and legal issues in a way that can be digested and processed efficiently by judges and juries alike.
