Stroock is nationally recognized as a leader in the representation of companies in the full range of compliance, regulatory and litigation matters.  Our clients include, among others, commercial and consumer banks, residential lenders, student lending companies, automobile finance companies, credit card issuers, payment processors, investment banks, e-commerce companies, telecommunications companies and insurance companies. We have litigated virtually all aspects of the financial services business, including matters regarding lending and servicing, retail banking, unfair practices, insolvency and federal and state regulatory compliance.  In particular, we have achieved prominence in the defense and settlement of the consumer class actions routinely brought against financial services companies.  Our litigators have defended and settled, including through innovative settlement structures, hundreds of such actions within the past few years alone, addressing a wide range of class action-related issues.  We have argued three times to the California Supreme Court on issues of critical concern in connection with the defense of class actions – Washington Mutual v. Superior Court (Briseno), Discover Bank v. Superior Court (Boehr) and McGill v. Citibank – and routinely appear before federal and state appellate courts across the country. Our clients include the nation’s leading financial companies, including American ExpressCitigroupDiscover, JPMorgan Chase, HSBC and TransUnion.
 
Our group also has extensive experience in representing financial institutions, and their officers, directors, and employees, in administrative and judicial enforcement actions brought by the various state and federal financial institutions’ regulatory agencies, including state Attorneys General, the Department of Justice, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the Federal Reserve Board, Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).  Drawing on our unique resources, we have played a central role in numerous multi-state regulatory investigations.
