We are pleased to announce the placement of Jennifer Lee with Arent Fox in its San Francisco office. She was a partner at Dorsey in Silicon Valley.
Ms. Lee represents financial services firms and banks in government investigations, Congressional inquiries, and litigation matters involving federal or state consumer financial statutes and implementing regulations. She also reviews high risk products and services and performs compliance control reviews and regulatory reviews in connection with corporate transactions and bank supervisory exams. Ms. Lee also counsels emerging technology companies on issues related to consumer lending, mobile banking, privacy, data protection and virtual currencies.
Ms. Lee served as an Enforcement Attorney in the CFPB’s Field Litigation Team for several years since the agency’s inception. In that role, she led investigations of financial services firms; negotiated consent orders and stipulations and admissions with such firms; and served as the CFPB’s Enforcement Division’s representative on supervisory examinations conducted by the CFPB under its visitorial powers. Her frequent appearances before the CFPB set her apart from most practitioners in the enforcement arena.
Ms. Lee is a highly regarded commentator on consumer financial services issues, and has been quoted in national and international publications including The Wall Street Journal, American Banker, The National Law Journal, Forbes, Bloomberg and many others.
