David Fialkow is a litigation partner in the firm's Boston office and serves as practice group coordinator for the firm’s financial institutions and services litigation group. His litigation practice is split between consumer financial services litigation and general business litigation.
On the consumer financial services side, national banks, mortgage servicers, student lenders, and other consumer financial services providers rely upon David to represent them in litigation, class actions, arbitrations, administrative proceedings, and other disputes involving state and federal laws related to lending, mortgage origination, loan servicing, auto loans, student loans, debt collection, credit reporting, unfair and deceptive trade practices, as well as a host of other consumer finance laws. Clients also ask David to represent them in state and federal appeals, and to advise them on compliance with state and federal laws regulating consumer financial products and services. Working collaboratively with his clients, David strives to provide clients with practical solutions to their real world problems.
Beyond consumer finance, David’s corporate and individual clients seek his representation in an array of commercial and personal disputes. Clients regularly seek David’s assistance with their disputes involving contracts, competition, intellectual property, antitrust, fiduciary duties, employment, as well as other matters. With the help of an experienced team, David guides clients to practical resolutions, whether through full litigation or negotiated compromise.
Prior to joining K&L Gates, David was a partner at a national law firm.
