Firm Details

Focus on Banking, Commercial and Consumer Financial Services

Established in 1997,Hudson Cook, LLP focuses on state and federal banking, commercial and consumer financial services and privacy compliance, regulation, enforcement, and supervision. From our 13 offices across the country, we work to provide local, national and international clients with practical, efficient and innovative solutions that advance their underlying business goals. We accomplish this by leveraging the knowledge of our attorneys, who possess a deep understanding of the extraordinarily complex and interrelated laws and regulations applicable to the consumer financial services industry.  

Hudson Cook’s attorneys stay at the forefront of compliance as new developments in the banking and consumer finance industries unfold. As financial service delivery continues to move into the digital space, we are there to help our clients address new challenges and seize new opportunities. We closely watch developments among federal and state agencies and legislative bodies to anticipate new laws and regulations as well as changes to existing laws and regulations. We apply our knowledge to help reduce our clients’ risk exposure by routinely assisting with compliance programs and oversight. Should a client come under investigation by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), Federal Trade Commission (FTC), Department of Justice (DOJ) or state regulators, we are there to defend them.  

Accomplished Legal Team

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. This agency and corporate experience enables us to adeptly anticipate our clients’ opportunities or obstacles and identify solutions that best advance their business and operational needs. We are able to view legal issues from a variety of perspectives, whether that be from the in-house counsel point of view or that of a governmental regulator.  

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. Fourteen partners of the firm are Fellows of the American College of Consumer Financial Services Lawyers, two of whom have received the college’s prestigious “Lifetime Achievement Award.” Many of our partners are past and present leaders in the Consumer Financial Services, Banking and UCC Committees of the Business Law Section of the American Bar Association.

Dedication to Our Clients and Their Businesses

Hudson Cook creates and maintains long-lasting relationships with clients. In fact, a number of our current clients date back to the firm’s founding in 1997. Such relationships require trust, which is why our goal is to provide clients the best answers we can in the most responsive manner possible. It is a goal we are proud to consistently achieve, as we are fortunate to have many clients that consider us their go-to firm for efficient and authoritative answers to their legal questions.  

From the outset, our attorneys approach client matters with a focus on compliance in order to 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 consumer financial services laws. 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.
