We are pleased to report that Ballard Spahr’s Consumer Financial Services Group has once again received the highest national ranking from Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business.  The Group was ranked in the highest tier nationally in three categories: Compliance, Litigation, and Enforcement & Investigations.  Enforcement & Investigations was added by Chambers USA last year as a new category for Financial Services Regulation: Consumer Finance.

Our firm is one of only two firms to be ranked in the highest tier nationally in all three categories.  These rankings demonstrate the strength of our CFS practice, with more than 70 lawyers across the country.  Our CFS Group has been ranked in Band One every year since Chambers USA introduced a national category for consumer finance.  The rankings are largely based on client feedback and peer review.

Released this week, the Chambers USA report praised the Group’s skill in supporting clients at both the state and federal regulatory levels.  According to the report, the Group is noted for its work with banks and non-banks on the full range of consumer finance regulatory matters, including credit cards, mortgage, and auto finance issues.  Chambers USA also noted the Group’s expertise in the areas of fintech, e-commerce, and prepaid cards and its ability to provide robust representation of clients in CFPB enforcement actions, arbitrations and litigation.

The 2022 edition quotes our clients who have said that the Group is “open, responsive and turn[s] things around quickly,” has “good expertise and we get good partner attention,” and provides “excellent written responses which are very well written and detailed.”

We are proud of the work we do, and very grateful to our clients for entrusting us to help them develop new products, defend them in private litigation and against enforcement actions, and assist them in navigating the increasingly complex array of federal and state regulations.
