WilmerHale offers its clients broad experience and exceptional advocacy in all aspects of anti-discrimination and fair lending practice, including litigation, regulatory investigations and fair lending examinations, and compliance and counseling.


Our attorneys have extensive experience representing clients in anti-discrimination and fair lending matters in federal and state courts, as well as before regulatory bodies such as the Department of Justice, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), Federal Reserve, Department of the Treasury, Federal Trade Commission and state agencies. We have defended financial institutions, insurance companies, and automobile lenders and dealers in high-profile anti-discrimination and fair lending investigations and litigation against the government and private plaintiffs. We routinely counsel clients on compliance with anti-discrimination and fair lending laws—including the Fair Housing Act, Equal Credit Opportunity Act, and other federal and state anti-discrimination and consumer protection statutes—across all types of financial products and services, including mortgage, credit card, auto lending and more. Our attorneys have routinely advised and represented financial services clients in CFPB fair lending examinations and enforcement matters since the Bureau's inception in 2011.
