Richard Andrew Arculin, former senior counsel for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's (CFPB) Office of Regulations, has joined law firm Venable LLP as a counsel in its Washington, D.C., office.
While serving at the CFPB, Arculin was responsible for the development and implementation of consumer financial services regulations under the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA), the Truth in Lending Act (TILA) and the Equal Credit Opportunity Act.
Arculin regularly served as the agency's expert concerning mortgage and consumer credit matters. Further, he led a bureau-wide effort to support the implementation of the TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosures rule.
At Venable, Arculin will join the firm's CFPB task force.
‘Andy has played a leading role in helping shape recent consumer banking and lending regulations,’ notes Jonathan L. Pompan, co-chair of the CFPB task force. ‘Andy's firsthand insight into the current consumer financial protection regulatory and enforcement landscape is an invaluable asset for helping clients stay compliant with a constantly evolving set of laws.’
Prior to joining the CFPB, Arculin worked in private practice and as a law clerk for U.S. District Court Judge James Cacheris.
