Deep insights into the regulatory and political framework, combined with our longstanding relationships with industry leaders, enable our team to craft comprehensive strategic solutions to meet our clients’ regulatory challenges and business goals.

Our team includes former high-level enforcement officials and regulators and we leverage our extensive industry knowledge to help financial services firms develop and maintain pragmatic internal compliance systems, identify risks and create and implement policies and procedures to address the ever-expanding range of regulatory requirements.

We handle both routine and targeted inspections and inquiries by the CFPB, OCC, FTC, SEC and other federal and state regulators. We guide clients through regulatory examinations, respond to regulatory inquiries, draft responses to investigative demands and deficiency letters and, when necessary, defend them in enforcement actions. Our experience includes effective advocacy in legislative and rulemaking proceedings and negotiation of major financial services settlements with federal and state agencies in the wake of the Dodd-Frank Act and the National Mortgage Settlement.
