Please join us in offering well wishes to Karen Morgan, a Mortgage Banking Group associate in the Washington, D.C., office who is leaving Ballard Spahr for a new opportunity at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Karen will be Attorney-Advisor in the CFPB’s Office of Supervision Policy under its Division of Supervision, Enforcement, and Fair Lending.

Karen has been a highly valued member of the Group. She counsels national mortgage servicers and financial institutions on compliance issues and legal risks under state and federal financial services laws and regulations. In this regard, she has a very keen understanding of how the CFPB’s regulatory and enforcement actions affect the mortgage banking industry.

Karen has been a wonderful part of the team, and we will miss her considerable legal talents. But we know that those same talents will make her a tremendous asset to the CFPB.
