Summary

Jeremy regularly serves as a neutral mediator and arbitrator of complex disputes worldwide.  He also serves as an expert witness in matters affecting financial institutions and other creditors.  Jeremy is presently the Compliance Officer and General Counsel of a ninety-year-old financial institution.  In his former private practice, he acted as a transaction, regulatory, and trial attorney focused on complex issues related to financial institutions and other creditors.

Jeremy has significant mediation, arbitration, and litigation experience representing clients in complex bankruptcy, restructuring, and creditors’ rights issues, including receivership, foreclosure, and pre-litigation workout of defaulted credits–including the liquidation and servicing of SBA and other government guaranteed loans.  He advised financial institutions on various regulatory matters including regulatory applications and examinations, negotiation of regulatory agreements, and litigation of disputes involving financial institution regulations.  His varied transaction experience includes loan origination and workout involving complex lending relationships, and he regularly counseled servicers of securitized commercial loan portfolios in connection with commercial loan origination, assumptions, and defeasances, among others.

Jeremy’s legal advice is informed by his practical banking experience, having served as Compliance Officer and General Counsel of a financial institution and having worked in the Consumer and Small Business Divisions of Bank of America and the Corporate Trust Division of Wells Fargo. Additionally, he is a graduate and former executive student advisor of the Pacific Coast Banking School at the University of Washington—the Nation’s premier national graduate school of banking. This practical perspective is key to Jeremy’s ability to counsel and interact credibly with institutional clients on sophisticated matters.
