Covid-19 Legal Resources & Capabilities

Introduction

The government’s attempt to ease the devastating economic fallout of the Covid‑19 pandemic created programs with millions of beneficiaries and thousands of intermediaries that play a role in distributing funds. Regulators of every stripe are communicating new expectations, and just as often, issuing guidance, rules, and regulations that change the way companies operate — with the threat of enforcement actions and litigation looming for those that don’t figure it out quickly.

Buckley is uniquely situated to help companies face these challenges head on. Our core strengths sit at the confluence of the most threatening risks companies of every size and in every industry now face from the pandemic and the government’s response. We are structured to respond to urgent needs, and feature a deep bench of industry-leading legal professionals in regulatory compliance, investigations and enforcement, litigation, and white collar defense. We forgo rigid practice group structures in favor of cross-disciplinary teams that provide best-in-class advice through a tailored, responsive approach that delivers the legal experience of a diversified law firm.

Buckley’s financial services regulatory team is well-versed in the legal and operational complexities of loan origination and servicing, and has deep experience advising financial institutions and borrowers on lending programs and changes to mortgage servicing and credit reporting requirements. Our Covid‑19 Regulatory Tracker, available to clients, is a rigorously maintained library of federal and state regulatory developments, and our attorneys provide practical, business-oriented advice on complying with them.

Our nationally recognized enforcement, white collar, and litigation practices complement our regulatory compliance capabilities. Our attorneys work extensively with federal and state regulatory agencies, state attorneys general, and other investigative bodies — including inspectors general, which loom as oversight bodies in current and future administrations. Many of us have significant government experience, including in senior appointed positions; we understand what agencies are looking for and how they operate.

Buckley attorneys have spent decades handling matters before various federal and state enforcement agencies and regulators, and we have been involved in every significant Department of Justice white collar enforcement initiative over the past three decades. We rely upon our collaborative culture to assemble a legal team that is ideally suited to handle the full range of enforcement and litigation proceedings likely to result from the pandemic, including complex civil litigation, consumer class action defense, and individual and corporate defense.
