Jonathan, a member of Husch Blackwell’s Financial Services & Capital Markets team, concentrates his broad practice in consumer financial services litigation and complex business litigation. His clients include banks, mortgage lenders, mortgage servicers, finance companies, auto finance and leasing companies, small loan lenders, credit card issuers, credit insurers and debt collection agencies. His experience includes defending clients in private plaintiff lawsuits, particularly class actions, and in state attorney general lawsuits alleging violations under federal and state consumer lending and consumer protection statutes (such as TILA, FDCPA, TCPA, FCRA, ECOA, FHA and RESPA). In addition, Jonathan advises clients on regulatory investigations and administrative enforcement actions. His experience includes smaller disputes as well, involving creative, cost-effective defense strategies.
As an adjunct to litigation, Jonathan counsels financial services clients on compliance issues involving, at times, overlapping federal, state and local statutes, regulations and ordinances promulgated by various departments and agencies.
Jonathan also defends other business clients in lawsuits, including class actions, involving employment discrimination, product liability and contracts involving the sale of goods and services to consumers.
