For nearly 30 years, Mr. Rosenblum’s practice has focused on federal and state lending and consumer practices laws, with particular emphasis on the interplay between federal and state laws. Mr. Rosenblum has extensively counseled clients on the Dodd-Frank Act, including its upcoming restrictions on federal preemption of state law and debit card interchange fees and the implications of the creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau; compliance with federal and state laws addressing overdraft fees, including laws prohibiting unfair and deceptive practices and guidance from the federal banking agencies; and the implementation of arbitration programs to minimize litigation risk.Mr. Rosenblum’s practice involves regular dealings with industry trade groups and regulators. In this regard, Mr. Rosenblum has drafted a number of amicus curiae briefs, to the U.S. Supreme Court and other courts, on behalf of a number of leading industry and business trade groups, including the American Bankers Association, the Consumer Bankers Association, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the Mortgage Bankers Association, the Financial Services Roundtable, the Clearing House Association and the American Financial Services Association. In 1998, Mr. Rosenblum obtained for Huntington National Bank a ground-breaking letter from the OCC concluding that national banks with offices in multiple states are permitted to charge the interest allowed by the laws of their home states upon compliance with minimal requirements. OCC Interp. Letter No. 822 (Feb. 17, 1998) (sometimes colloquially known as the “Rosenblum Letter”).
