Jeremiah Buckley Elected Chancellor of Washington's Exchequer Club
Jeremiah S. Buckley, a founding partner of Buckley Sandler LLP, has been elected Chancellor of the Exchequer Club of Washington, DC. He will begin his duties on August 1. A long-time Club member, Mr. Buckley most recently served as Vice-Chancellor.
The Exchequer Club was formed in 1960 by a group of individuals whose primary professional interest was in the field of national economic and financial policy. Today, its membership includes more than 200 senior professionals from trade associations, federal regulatory agencies, law firms, Congressional committees, and the national press. The Club's purpose is to provide an open forum for industry leaders to discuss national economic, financial, and political matters. Featured speakers at the Club’s luncheon meetings have included Secretaries of the Treasury, Chairs of the Federal Reserve, and Chairs of the SEC. FDIC Vice Chair Thomas Hoenig will address the Club in September.
“The Exchequer Club has a long tradition of thought leadership in Washington’s financial community. It is an honor to be elected as Chancellor and join the long line of Chancellors who have served the Club over the last 65 years. I hope to lead the Club through another year of excellence,” said Mr. Buckley.
Regarded as “a recognized dean of the consumer finance bar,” by Chambers USA, Mr. Buckley has long been noted as one of the nation’s top financial services attorneys. In 2015, he was awarded the American College of Consumer Financial Services Lawyers’ Senator William Proxmire Lifetime Achievement Award and named a 2015 Senior Statesman in Consumer Finance (Compliance) by Chambers USA.
