Our team comprises attorneys with deep interdisciplinary knowledge of the automotive field. We understand the players, their values and priorities, and how financial services fit into the larger picture of the industry. The firm also boasts a deep bench of lawyers focused on general financial services, litigation, and government enforcement, if such knowledge is required.
Our partners have experience both in-house at financial institutions and with regulatory agencies, such as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), and have built a reputation for credibility and integrity in the industry. Bradley attorneys are leaders in developing state and federal law concerning arbitration clauses in the automotive finance context, are intimately familiar with the CFPB’s proposed arbitration rulemaking, and are at the forefront of emerging issues such as disparate impact.
