In this role, she focuses her practice on defending clients against state and federal class actions regarding consumer protection and consumer finance laws, representing clients before the Consumer Financial Protection Board (CFPB), the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and state banking agencies, and assisting clients in adhering to the dynamic landscape of platform and peer-to-peer (P2P) lending.

CFPB

Having represented clients before the CFPB since it was established, Claudia understands the varying perspectives of key stakeholders involved, and helps clients navigate the hurdles, pitfalls and opportunities available to the numerous parties involved under the CFPB's jurisdiction. Working with banks, credit unions, platform lenders and other financial services clients, Claudia provides pragmatic advice on numerous state and federal banking and consumer protection matters, including privacy, collections, credit reporting and usury issues.

Platform and P2P Lending

Claudia is also recognized as a veteran in the platform lending space, which enables her to provide her clients with real-time updates and developments in this ever-changing landscape. She has spoken numerous times on issues related to merchant cash advance, crowdfunding, business-to-business and P2P consumer finance, and brings a holistic understanding of the technical, regulatory and financial complexities within the platform lending arena.

In addition to her client responsibilities, Claudia has also served as an adjunct professor at Georgetown University Law Center and American University Washington College of Law, taught in Georgetown's Criminal Justice Clinic and acted as faculty advisor to the national champion Georgetown Patent & Copyright Moot Court Team.
