Having built a CMS from the ground up as the various pieces of Dodd-Frank were implemented, Al took on the responsibility of managing his prior employer’s litigation portfolio.  With civil and regulatory matters pending from Hawaii to New York, Al had developed a robust understanding of risk issues associated with administrative actions, civil enforcement actions, default related litigation, and in federal, state, and administrative courts.
