Financial services regulation

Within: Financial services regulation

Based in Washington DC and able to tap into the insider knowledge of numerous former government officials (including several CFPB alumni), Venable LLP excels in handling enforcement, transactional and advisory work for an array of consumer finance entities, including mortgage brokers, student loan servicers, payment processors and marketplace lenders. Andrew Arculin has vast experience across consumer lending, fintech and mortgage banking; he recently assisted Laurel Road Bank on the launch of brand and online lending platforms for mortgages, student loans and personal loans. Co-chair Jonathan Pompan's recent work has included advising LendingUSA on consumer financial services law regulatory compliance and product development, as well as providing regulatory due diligence to Warburg Pincus in relation to potential consumer finance-related acquisitions. The arrival in September 2018 of Laura Biddle from Hogan Lovells US LLP adds further weight to the team, given her credibility before the regulators on behalf of domestic and foreign banks, fintech providers and non-bank companies. Co-head Allyson Baker is also recommended, particularly for contentious matters. Other clients include JPMorgan Chase, Citadel Servicing Corporation and Republic Bank and Trust.
