I am pleased to announce that Judy Mok, an attorney with extensive experience negotiating complex payments transactions for some of the world’s largest retailers and financial institutions, has joined Ballard Spahr as Of Counsel in the firm’s Consumer Financial Services Group.  She will be based in the firm’s New York office.

Judy has a wealth of experience in negotiating and drafting commercial agreements, with a focus on strategic partnership arrangements.  Her substantial experience includes negotiating and drafting co-branded and private-label credit card agreements, payment network agreements, merchant agreements, servicing agreements, processing agreements, and portfolio purchase and sale agreements.

Judy’s arrival further bolsters Ballard’s offerings in the consumer payment systems space, as she reunites with two former colleagues who joined the firm last year: Chris Ford, a noted Fintech attorney who has led some of the country’s largest and most innovative payment systems transactions, and David Medlar, who has negotiated intricate deals involving payment systems, merchant acquisition, and gateway payment services.
