February 2, 2012: PAUL SNYDER JOINS FORCES WITH TALCOTT FRANKLIN P.C.
Paul Snyder, a leading commercial mortgage-backed securities (CMBS) litigator, is joining the Dallas-based Talcott Franklin P.C. law firm effective today. Snyder, who is licensed in Kansas and Missouri, will be based in Leawood, Kansas and will continue his membership in Snyder Law Firm LLC along with his position as of counsel for Talcott Franklin P.C.
Paul brings with him significant CMBS trial experience having achieved back-to-back federal jury trial victories against Bank of America in Ohio and Oklahoma federal courts. These cases are believed to be the first two CMBS repurchase cases ever to reach a jury verdict. Snyder’s litigation experience combined with Tal Franklin’s established national expertise in CMBS and residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) transactions creates a formidable team. “We are excited that Paul Snyder is joining our team. Paul’s experience as a national CMBS investor advocate greatly enhances our Firm’s expertise in pursuing investor rights with both CMBS and RMBS claims. Being the first lawyer to achieve a CMBS repurchase verdict from a jury lends Paul instant credibility in the securitization world,” explains Tal Franklin, Founder and President of Talcott Franklin P.C. “Paul’s prior experience as a state prosecutor continues our Firm’s commitment to ensure that all our attorneys have in-house or government experience,” Franklin adds.
Talcott Franklin P.C. primarily pursues investor rights in securitization transactions. The firm founded the RMBS Clearing House, which allows investors to seek confidential legal advice concerning their collective action rights in conjunction with other clients of the firm. The firm currently represents foreign and domestic clients who collectively hold over half of the outstanding international balance of private label RMBS certificates.
