Bob Buchanan, partner in litigation, wrote “Commonwealth v. Fremont: Innovative Chapter 93A Litigation Applied to the Mortgage Crisis” published in the Boston Bar Journal.  In the article, a Case Focus piece, Mr. Buchanan analyzes the Court's reasoning that in issuing certain subprime mortgages, Fremont violated the “unfair” branch of Chapter 93A.  Mr. Buchanan explores the question:  “Does this reasoning set a new standard of conduct under Chapter 93A, or does it apply existing standards to a new crisis?”
