A former attorney with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has joined Hunton & Williams as a partner in Washington.
Ronald Rubin, an enforcement attorney with the bureau's supervision, fair lending and enforcement division joins the firm's bankruptcy, restructuring and creditor's rights practice.
At the bureau, Rubin drafted the enforcement action process which dictates how the enforcement division interacts with the rest of the bureau. He also wrote the agency's notice of early warning of possible enforcement action.
In an interview, Rubin said that he would like to work on matters related to the Securities and Exchange Commission and criminal defense, in addition to matters related to the bureau.
"It was a once in a lifetime opportunity to be there at the birth of a new government agency," Rubin said. "Dodd-Frank made CFPB very powerful, and they are going to be doing lots investigations and lots of oversight."
