Jeremy T. Rosenblum has devoted the past 30 years in private practice to representing the consumer financial services industry.
Jeremy's practice focuses on federal and state lending and consumer practices laws, with emphasis on the interplay between federal and state laws, joint ventures between banks and nonbank financial services providers, the development and documentation of new financial services products (especially products designed to serve the needs of unbanked and under-banked consumers), bank overdraft practices and disclosures, geographic expansion initiatives, and compliance with federal and state consumer protection and usury laws, including "UDAAP" statutes prohibiting unfair, deceptive, and abusive acts and practices; the Truth in Lending Act (TILA); the Electronic Funds Transfer Act; E-SIGN; the Equal Credit Opportunity Act; and the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA).
- Obtained for Huntington National Bank in 1998 a letter from the OCC concluding that national banks with offices in multiple states are permitted to charge the interest allowed by the laws of their home states upon compliance with minimal requirements [OCC Interp. Letter No. 822 (Feb. 17, 1998) (sometimes colloquially known as the "Rosenblum Letter")]; letter reversed OCC policy that, until that point, had required a highly fact-intensive analysis that hampered the ability of multistate banks to export home state interest charges.
- Served as counsel in Greenwood Trust Company v. Massachusetts, the first decision in the nation holding that federally insured financial institutions may charge and export as "interest" not only periodic rates of interest but also flat late charges.
- Served as counsel in Hudson v. ACE Cash Express, where the Southern District of Indiana applied Section 85 to dismiss with prejudice usury allegations against ACE, a nonbank, holding that a national bank's utilization of ACE's services in originating and servicing its loans and its sale to ACE of a 90- to 95-percent participation interest in the loans did not justify treating ACE as the "true" lender.
