Firm Details

Focus on Consumer and Commercial Financial Services and Banking

Established in 1997, Hudson Cook, LLP focuses on state and federal consumer and commercial financial services, banking and privacy compliance, regulation, enforcement and supervision. From our offices around the country, we leverage the knowledge of our attorneys, who understand the complex and interrelated laws and regulations applicable to the consumer and commercial financial services and banking industries.

Hudson Cook provides legal advice to many different types of clients on diverse financial services issues, including:

  • Automotive and Personal Property Finance and Leasing
  • Banking
  • Business Funding
  • Credit and Debit Cards
  • Credit Reporting, Privacy and Data Security
  • Debt Collection Practices
  • Education Lending
  • Fintech
  • Government Investigations, Examinations and EnforcementLitigation
  • Mortgage Lending and Servicing
  • Payment Systems
  • Small Dollar Lending and Alternative Consumer Financial Services

 

Our government investigations, examinations and enforcement practice, centered in the firm's Washington, D.C. office, has been working with our creditor clients for a number of years to help them prepare for examinations and resolve investigations and enforcement actions with federal regulators, such as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), Federal Trade Commission (FTC), U.S. Department of Justice, state regulators and state Attorneys General. Our team includes former officials with federal regulatory agencies, including the CFPB, FTC and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC); former in-house lawyers from banks, sales finance companies and other financial services institutions; and attorneys with lengthy experience representing many financial services firms as outside counsel. We are able to view legal issues from various perspectives, whether from the in-house counsel point of view or that of a government regulator.

Dedicated to our clients and their businesses

Our goal is to provide clients with answers to their unique needs in a responsive manner. A number of our clients date back to the firm's founding in 1997. Our attorneys approach client matters with a focus on compliance in order to minimize the possibility of avoid investigation and enforcement. Our long-term focus on regulatory compliance has enabled us to respond efficiently to our clients' questions about how best to navigate the complicated maze of federal and state financial services and banking law. However, many new clients come to us for assistance in responding to investigative demands and our lawyers approach these matters with the objective to negotiate outcomes that minimize or mitigate costs and penalties.

Your Legal Team

Hudson Cook attorneys hold leadership positions in many legal and industry groups, and we regularly speak and publish articles on consumer financial services compliance topics. Several attorneys of the firm are Fellows of the American College of Consumer Financial Services Lawyers, and many are past and present leaders in the Consumer Financial Services, Banking and UCC Committees of the Business Law Section of the American Bar Association.

Firm Culture

Hudson Cook is proud of its culture. Our lawyers reflect the firm's commitment to diversity, and are able to balance thriving professional practices with their personal lives.

We appreciate and value our client relationships and look forward to providing our clients with the advice and service they deserve.
