Mr. Lampe, who joins the Financial Services Group, is a nationally recognized expert in bank regulatory and consumer financial services issues, with significant experience in mortgage regulation.

He also has extensive experience representing industry respondents in significant investigations, examinations and enforcement matters.
"We are pleased to welcome Don to the firm, and look forward to seeing our clients benefit from his expertise and deep understanding of operational issues.
