Weiner Brodsky Kider PC- Platinum Sponsor
Conference Hotel Keys
The attorneys of Weiner Brodsky Kider PC have been involved in the real estate and financial services industries for more than three decades, and our firm is one of the leading law firms in the country practicing in these areas. A number of our members have served as senior officials with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and are experts in housing finance matters. In addition, we have former U.S. Department of Justice trial attorneys who are well-versed in the handling of litigation matters as well as government investigations and administrative proceedings.
The compliance element of our financial services practice includes advising clients generally with regard to federal and state laws that regulate the origination and servicing of mortgage loans. More specifically, we assist clients in their compliance with, among others, the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act, Truth in Lending Act, Equal Credit Opportunity Act, Fair Housing Act, Home Mortgage Disclosure Act, Fair Debt Collections Practices Act, E-Sign, and Gramm-Leach-Bliley, as well as with the requirements of CFPB, HUD, VA, GNMA, Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac. We also counsel clients with respect to licensing and other requirements of various state regulators. Our presence in Washington, D.C. naturally lends itself to the representation of mortgage lending clients and their depository affiliates before CFPB, HUD, VA, GNMA, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, the Federal Reserve Board, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, and the Federal Trade Commission. Without exception, our firm maintains excellent working relationships with these agencies. Our attorneys also participate in agency rulemaking proceedings and advise clients on both federal and state law developments. Additionally, we assist clients with various mortgage banking related transactions. These transactions include the acquisition and sale of mortgage companies, branch offices, whole loan portfolios and loan servicing portfolios; the structuring of lending programs, loan broker and correspondent programs, warehouse agreements, repurchase agreements, and loan participation agreements; and the negotiation of loan workouts. We serve as counsel for the National Reverse Mortgage Lenders Association and advise reverse mortgage industry members with respect to regulatory compliance matters, transactions, and new lending and investor programs. We also serve as counsel for The Real Estate Valuation Advocacy Association and The Texas Manufactured Housing Association. Finally, we provide advice directly, and through associated counsel, about state law issues in all 50 states and the District of Columbia affecting financial service industry members.
Compliance Audits and Due Diligence
We routinely undertake reviews of the operations, practices and policies and procedures of our clients, and assist with the design and implementation of appropriate corrective action. We undertake similar reviews on behalf of potential investors, as well as reviewing pools and portfolios for compliance with applicable law.
Building on the firm's financial services practice, our aim is to provide mortgage lenders, and other financial institutions, with litigation assistance with respect to the full range of issues that affect the mortgage industry. In that regard, we have represented clients in a broad array of civil and administrative litigation matters, including cases involving the Dodd-Frank Act, Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act, Truth in Lending Act, Equal Credit Opportunity Act, Fair Housing Act, loan repurchase obligations, and mortgage loan portfolio sales and servicing. We represent clients in litigation involving private parties as well as litigation brought by or against government entities in connection with the participation by clients in government lending, insurance, and guaranty programs. We have developed a particular expertise in class action cases and have represented a number of clients in connection with class actions involving disclosures, servicing fees, credit reporting, escrow account practices, private mortgage insurance, unauthorized transmission of facsimiles, and other issues arising under all of the major federal mortgage lending laws. Our litigation practice is nationwide, with cases pending in numerous state and federal courts across the country as well as before various administrative agencies.
