Greg is a partner in the firm’s Financial Services Litigation and Compliance Practice Group. His practice addresses many aspects of consumer protection law compliance and litigation on behalf of financial services companies. With the advance of technology resulting in new methods of payment and new business platforms, Greg’s practice has evolved to emphasize issues relating to payments. Indeed, the one common denominator in every consumer transaction is the requirement that the consumer pay for the goods or services provided, whether that payment is accomplished through cash, check, credit card, debit card, ACH transfer or wire transfer. As technology continues to alter the means of conducting business with consumers, Greg provides guidance to financial institutions as they navigate the legal issues relating to the developing payment options.
Greg’s consumer protection law practice is a natural outgrowth of his role as debtor’s counsel in the bankruptcy case of a subprime mortgage lender, Accredited Home Lenders, during the aftermath of the Great Recession. During the bankruptcy, liquidation and dissolution of AHL, Greg was the principal lawyer involved in the dissection of a multi-billion dollar mortgage loan originator, servicer and loan seller. As a result, he has developed unique insight into the consumer finance industry that is beneficial to our clients.
In addition to his consumer protection law practice, Greg continues to represent clients in bankruptcy cases all over the country and in out-of-court restructurings. During the course of his career, Greg has represented debtors, equity holders, members of boards of directors, unsecured creditors’ committees, secured lenders, unsecured creditors, purchasers of assets and parties to leases and executory contracts. In addition to representing parties in bankruptcy cases, Greg is frequently involved in addressing bankruptcy risks through the structuring of transactions out of bankruptcy, including assets sales, restructurings, loan transactions and securitized transactions.
