Washington, D.C. - The Washington, D.C., office of global law firm K&L Gates LLP welcomes John ReVeal as a partner in the consumer financial services practice. He joins K&L Gates from Bryan Cave LLP, where he was the head of the retail banking practice. ReVeal’s practice focuses on consumer protection regulation, banking law, and Bank Secrecy Act and related anti-money laundering matters. He advises banks and non-bank financial services companies on compliance and training issues arising under such laws as the Truth in Lending, Real Estate Settlement Procedures, Equal Credit Opportunity, Electronic Fund Transfers, Fair Credit Reporting, and Fair Debt Collection Practices acts, as well as state and federal consumer privacy requirements and unfair, deceptive, or abusive acts or practices (UDAAP) laws. Additionally, ReVeal assists clients with bank powers, formation and acquisition, non-bank financial services licensing, corporate governance, and federal preemption matters.
“We’re thrilled to welcome John to our consumer financial services practice and our office,” said David T. Case, administrative partner of K&L Gates’ Washington, D.C., office. “His deep experience in consumer lending and financial services regulation will help enhance the services we provide to banking and financial clients in Washington and across the globe.”
K&L Gates’ consumer financial services practice comprises lawyers representing diversified financial services institutions and their affiliated service providers. The practice divides its work among transactional, regulatory compliance, government enforcement, licensing and approvals, public policy and governmental affairs, litigation, and class action defense. ReVeal is the third new partner or of counsel to join K&L Gates’ Washington, D.C., office in 2017, following the earlier additions of government enforcement partner Michael T. Dyson and tax-exempt organizations of counsel Barry J. Hart.
