Hudson Cook Partner Appointed to CFPB Taskforce on Federal Consumer Financial Law
Jean Noonan, a Partner at Hudson Cook, LLP, has been announced as one of the new members of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Taskforce on Federal Consumer Financial Law.
Seeking to produce research and legal analysis of US consumer financial laws, over the next year the taskforce will focus on “harmonizing, modernizing, and updating the federal consumer financial laws – and their impending regulations – and identifying gaps in knowledge that should be addressed through research, ways to improve consumer understanding of markets and products, and potential conflicts or inconsistencies in existing regulations and guidance,” according to a CFPB statement.
Noonan has served as General Counsel at the Farm Credit Administration and Former Associate Director of the bureau of Consumer Protection Credit Practice at the Federal Trade Commission. The Hudson Cook Partner has also focused her legal practice on fair lending, private and consumer protection matters, as well as consumer financial services.
“It is a true honor to participate in this historic undertaking by the Bureau,” Noonan said in a Hudson Cook statement. “I look forward to collaborating with the other members of the Taskforce who share my deep interest and experience in the field to help the Bureau to enhance and fortify our consumer financial laws and regulations.”Last modified: January 14, 2020
