He founded The Rooney Firm and has represented clients in litigation and defended clients against government enforcement actions and investigations for more than 10 years at two prominent consumer financial services practices in Washington, D.C.
“Mark has a wealth of experience in the defense of both civil litigation matters as well as government enforcement actions against some of the most prominent companies in the financial services space,” said Lucy Morris, chair of Hudson Cook’s government investigations, examinations and enforcement practice. “His work as co-chair of the American Bar Association’s subcommittees on FDCPA and TCPA litigation exemplifies his leadership and depth of knowledge in consumer protection regulation.”
Rooney joins the Hudson Cook government investigations, examinations and enforcement practice in providing litigation support to consumer financial services companies and others facing government scrutiny or private consumer litigation. The firm’s attorneys in this practice area have decades of experience as private practitioners, in-house counsel, and counsel for federal agencies, including the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, Federal Trade Commission and Office of the Comptroller of the Currency.
