Richard Horn Leaves Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to Join Dentons
Richard B. Horn, former senior counsel and special advisor with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), has joined Dentons as a partner in the firm’s Capital Markets practice in the Washington D.C. office. Horn had led the final rulemaking for the integrated disclosures under the Truth in Lending Act and the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act while working at the Bureau, and prior to that he was a lawyer on the team of the Treasury Department that established the Bureau.
Co-leader of Dentons’ Capital Markets Groupt, Stephen Kudenholdt, said, “Rich was a key architect of one of the most important solutions to the financial crisis … We are delighted to welcome him to Dentons.”
Before joining the CFPB Implementation Team, Horn worked as a senior attorney at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation in the New York Regional Office. He supported the supervision staff on consumer compliance, risk management, and safety and soundness issues. His work involved both enforcement and regulatory matters.
At Dentons, Horn will advise clients on federal and state regulatory compliance issues, including those related to consumer finance and residential mortgages. Erik Klingenberg, co-leader of Dentons’ Capital Markets Group said, “Rich’s intimate, first-hand experience with regulatory, compliance and enforcement issues will be a tremendous asset to our clients.”
Horn’s hire comes within days of Dentons announcing the hires of Seth Harris, former acting secretary of labor, Jeff Lane, former assistant secretary for congressional and intergovernmental affairs at the US Department of Energy, and Eugene Degnan, a former program manager at the Department of Commerce.
Horn would be among known faces since a large group of lawyers had left the law firm, Thacher Proffitt & Wood LLP, where he used to work as an associate, and joined Dentons.
Richard Horn earned his J.D. from New York University School of Law. He is a frequent speaker on industry trends and developments, including public policy and consumer testing, private student loan compliance and mortgage disclosure reform.Richard Horn Leaves Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to Join Dentons by Scott
