Civil Rights Counseling
Relman Colfax has a robust civil rights and consumer protection counseling practice assisting financial institutions, Internet- and technology-based companies, housing providers, local governments, and nonprofits. The firm advises on the most pressing civil rights and consumer protection issues facing institutions today. We help companies manage risk and develop best-in-class guidelines, practices, and systems for complying with fair lending and consumer protection laws. Our lawyers’ extensive history litigating landmark housing, fair lending, and consumer protection cases—and our significant experience with agencies like the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Department of Justice, Federal Reserve Board, and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency—uniquely qualify us to provide compliance advice and risk assessments to companies seeking to increase access to responsible products and services.
