    More info Less info

    The attorneys of Weiner Brodsky Kider PC have been involved in the financial services industry for more than three decades, and our firm is one of the leading law firms in the country practicing in this area. 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.

    Compliance
    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.

    Litigation
    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.

    General Session: The Intersection of Policy and Politics

    More info Less info

    Few industries have been more impacted by the coronavirus pandemic than the mortgage sector. From Capitol Hill, where regulators have scrambled to balance the needs of homeowners and buyers with those of financial institutions, to Main Street, where protocols have had to shift to reduce possible COVID-19 transmission, the mortgage industry is changing at breakneck pace.

    Having worked with a wide range of clients in both the residential and commercial mortgage banking industries, our attorneys have the broad experience and strong industry relationships to help clients navigate uncharted territory and develop strategies for success. Our Mortgage Banking Group is part of Ballard Spahr's nationally recognized Consumer Financial Services Group. We combine broad regulatory experience with formidable skill in litigation and depth in enforcement actions and transactions. Our team represents clients worldwide, from start-ups to Fortune 500 corporations. Clients include financial institutions; mortgage lenders, brokers, and servicers; secondary-market investors; insurance companies; investment bankers; settlement service providers; auction platforms; and homebuilders. We also advise industry service providers such as technology vendors, collection agencies, document preparation companies, telemarketers, loan fulfillment companies, and trade associations.

    Compliance 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. More recently, we are assisting clients regarding compliance with issues involving the CARES Act as well as state, GSE and agency forbearance and loss mitigation requirements, and state work from home and related measures. 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). In addition, our team regularly advises clients on applicable state laws and requirements, including those involving licensing, permissible fees, unfair practices, disclosures, advertising, and telemarketing.

    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.

    Litigation When mortgage lending and servicing disputes escalate and require litigation, we have clients well covered. Ballard Spahr is home to a pre-eminent financial services litigation practice. We defend clients nationwide in class actions, single-plaintiff claims, regulatory proceedings, and other complex mortgage litigation. We often act as national coordinating counsel in defending litigation for major financial service providers, and we have handled class actions and other lawsuits involving the enforcement of contracts, challenges to contract terms, compliance challenges, insurance issues, and cases concerning RESPA, TILA, ECOA, FairHA, FCRA, FACTA, HMDA, GLBA, and state consumer protection acts. 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 Recovery Loan 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.
