About

Our firm helps banks, credit unions, mortgage lenders, mortgage brokers, consumer finance companies, and others involved in the lending process comply with the laws governing their business.  We regularly provide advice on multi-state and federal lending and loan servicing compliance, including licensing, documentation, disclosures, usury and fees.  We represent lenders, brokers, and others in regulatory enforcement proceedings and Freddie Mac exclusionary actions. We negotiate and draft loan purchase and sale agreements, marketing agreements, and other agreements integral to the lending industry.  We also counsel our clients on general business, contract, corporate, and employment matters.

The firm’s practice includes a multi-state and federal legislative monitoring service for its clients.  In addition, the firm is compliance counsel for Wolters Kluwer’s predatory lending product, Wiz Sentinel.
