The attorneys of Rome & Associates have achieved a growing renown both in the U.S. and overseas for their ability to masterfully achieve outstanding results for clients in payment processing disputes. Such disputes often involve challenging cross-border laws, tribunals, and underlying factual scenarios, but our attorneys have proved time and again their capacity and skills for navigating such complex legal terrain to win victory for their clients. With over a decade of experience in this area, we have counseled parties across the spectrum of the payment processing arena, including high-risk merchants, advertisers, affiliates, affiliate networks, referring agents, ISOs, processors, and acquirers.
Some of our attorneys’ recent successes in this area include winning a $9 million verdict on behalf of a Dutch payment processing company against one of the largest banks in the Philippines and its payment processing division. The verdict included $1.5 million in damages for conversion and fraud and $7.5 million in punitive damages, a result we secured after a two-week trial ending in a unanimous jury decision. In addition to litigating payment processing disputes on behalf of clients both in the U.S. and abroad, our attorneys are considered leading voices in the area of payment processing law and frequently speak on payment processing law at conferences.
