Former CFPB Senior Counsel Joins Law Firm

March 4, 2014

Richard Horn, former senior counsel and special advisor with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), has joined Dentons as a partner in the law firm’s Washington, D.C., office.

Working in Dentons’ capital markets group, Horn will advise clients on federal and state regulatory compliance issues, including those related to consumer finance and residential mortgages. Horn also brings to the firm extensive administrative enforcement experience on consumer compliance matters, including unfair or deceptive acts or practices (UDAP) and fair lending.

At the CFPB, he most recently led the final rulemaking for the integrated disclosures under the Truth in Lending Act and the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act, including the design and consumer testing of the disclosures.

Prior to joining the CFPB Implementation Team, Horn was a senior attorney at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) in the New York Regional Office, where he supported the supervision staff on consumer compliance, risk management, and safety and soundness issues, working on both enforcement and regulatory matters.
