On a more limited basis, Jeremy still serves as an expert witness and advises a select group of financial institutions and other creditor clients on sophisticated transaction, regulatory, or litigation matters.
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 has 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 has 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 General Counsel and Compliance Officer 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. Jeremy is a Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist (CAMS), a Bank Secrecy Act Compliance Specialist (BSACS), and a Credit Union Compliance Expert (CUCE). 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 and parties on sophisticated matters.
