Currently, BuckleySandler represents the top 10 largest banks in the United States, the top 10 mortgage servicing companies, nine of the top 10 mortgage lending companies, the top 10 credit card issuers, as well as many community banks and non-bank financial services companies. Additionally, BuckleySandler has 10 partners ranked in Chambers USA in Financial Services Regulation: Consumer Finance, more than any other firm in the country.
With attorneys from all of the major financial services regulators, including the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, Securities & Exchange Commission, Commodity Futures Trading Commission, Department of Justice, Federal Trade Commission, and Federal Reserve Board, BuckleySandler offers a depth of experience and insight that few firms can match.
MAIN AREAS OF PRACTICE:
Regulatory: BuckleySandler advises financial institutions in connection with regulatory examinations and supervision matters initiated by state and federal agencies. Our attorneys, some of whom have served as senior bank regulators, help guide clients through the examination process, provide day-to-day advice on compliance matters, and design effective risk management strategies. We counsel clients on pre-examination preparation, assist them with responding to regulators' inquiries, and engage with regulators throughout examinations to ensure favorable outcomes, in both legal and business objectives.
Licensing and Chartering: BuckleySandler assists clients with obtaining new lending, servicing, collection, insurance or money transmitter licenses, or obtaining "change of control" approvals for existing licensees, and assists banks and investment groups in analyzing charter alternatives and obtaining new charters. We assist new entrants, such as private equity investors, as well as ongoing businesses in structuring operations and transactions to minimize regulatory burden and facilitate the closing of transactions.
Counseling and Compliance: Our clients rely on us to provide sophisticated day-to-day compliance and risk management advice to ensure that their existing operations and new programs comply with ever-changing state and federal requirements. We assist our clients with developing and implementing comprehensive compliance management programs, including written policies, training, and ongoing monitoring needed to ensure compliance with fair lending laws, federal and state consumer protection statutes, consumer financial privacy and information security regulations, and anti-money laundering requirements.
Transactional: BuckleySandler represents community banks, bank holding companies, and other financial services companies in mergers, acquisitions, and related transactional matters. The firm represents clients in negotiating joint ventures and outsourcing arrangements, as well as licensing and e-commerce agreements. As part of this service, the firm conducts regulatory and legal due diligence or other risk assessments for clients considering acquisitions or strategic alliances.
Public Policy: BuckleySandler assists clients in analyzing and responding to the full range of bank legislative and regulatory initiatives, including the Dodd-Frank Act and its implementation by the CFPB and other federal agencies. We are also at the forefront of establishing the legal infrastructure for the electronic delivery of financial services.
Litigation: Our practice includes the defense of leading banks, financial services firms, and other companies and their executives in class actions, complex civil litigation, and arbitration proceedings. We defend clients in cases involving allegations of discrimination, predatory lending, unfair competition and deceptive trade acts and practices, fraud, false statements, false claims, and breach of contract, as well as other claimed violations of regulations and laws governing their business activities.
Enforcement: We represent financial services companies before the U.S. Department of Justice, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the Federal Trade Commission, the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Office of Inspector General, the Federal Housing Finance Agency, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, federal bank regulators, state attorneys general, and other federal and state regulatory agencies. Our experience, gained over decades, is invaluable in helping to defend the interests of companies and executives in examinations and investigations relating to financial services matters.
White Collar Defense: Corporations and their officers and directors turn to our leading white collar defense attorneys when faced with grand jury investigations and other white collar criminal matters. With decades of experience handling complex parallel proceedings involving concurrent government enforcement and civil litigation, congressional investigations, and/or multiple class actions, our attorneys have the depth of experience needed to help our clients navigate and emerge from sensitive investigations and litigation with their reputations and businesses intact.

Our Mortgage Banking Group is part of Ballard Spahr's nationally recognized Consumer Financial Services Group.

Our team represents clients worldwide, from start-ups to Fortune 500 corporations.

We also advise industry service providers such as technology vendors, collection agencies, document preparation companies, telemarketers, loan fulfillment companies, and trade associations.
The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and its establishment of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau have expanded compliance requirements, made compliance more complex, and greatly enhanced penalties for noncompliance.
Our attorneys counsel a variety of market participants on issues such as loan originator compensation and steering restrictions, loan originator overtime requirements, risk retention, repayment ability requirements, lending standards and restrictions, and disclosure requirements.
We have experience assisting clients with the ever-expanding range of federal laws, including the Truth in Lending Act (TILA), the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA), the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA), the Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA), the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), the Fair Housing Act (FairHA), the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA), and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA).

State and Federal Licensing
We assist clients in acquiring and maintaining the state licenses necessary to finance, broker, and service mortgages or engage in consumer credit finance activities. We also advise clients on SAFE Act requirements; help them meet branch, loan officer, trade name, and renewal or recertification requirements; and identify and obtain licenses and approvals related to stock and asset acquisitions. In addition, we work with clients to secure approvals from federal agencies, including Ginnie Mae, FHA, and VA, and the GSEs.
Transactions, Due Diligence, and Audits
Clients frequently call upon us to oversee transactional matters such as mergers and acquisitions, liquidations of distressed assets, purchases and sales of mortgage loans, servicing rights and other assets, formation of joint ventures and strategic alliances, and the establishment of warehousing and other credit facilities.
We assist investors with due diligence, conduct audits to ensure compliance, and develop procedures when corrective action is necessary. Our attorneys have experience reviewing operations for compliance with applicable state and federal law, as well as emerging industry trends. Our attorneys have provided counsel in review of a servicer's compliance with the OCC's Consent Order related to foreclosure practices.

We also defend clients in administrative enforcement proceedings and investigations, including state and federal audits, fair housing and fair lending complaints and investigations, HUD RESPA enforcement actions, inspector general investigations, and Mortgagee Review Board actions.
Our Mortgage Banking Group maintains strong industry relationships in both the private and public sector, and its presence in Washington, D.C., benefits clients who require experienced representation before federal agencies such as the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Federal Trade Commission, the Federal Reserve Board, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, and the Justice Department.
We also represent clients before a variety of state agencies, including state attorneys general and state agencies charged with enforcing a variety of consumer finance laws.
Repurchase, Coverage, and RecoveryLoan repurchases are a critical issue for the mortgage and financial services industries. We help limit our clients' exposure to loss stemming from repurchase issues, from evaluating repurchase demands and calculating risk to evaluating insurance coverage, and examining any available protections.
