David Anthony, a partner in Troutman Pepper’s Consumer Financial Services Practice Group, was recently elected a Fellow in the American College of Consumer Financial Services Lawyers. The College is a professional association of lawyers who have made significant contributions to the field of consumer financial services law, exhibit great skill and expertise in handling consumer financial services matters, and are dedicated to improving the practice of consumer financial services law.

As a Fellow, Anthony joins a select association of consumer financial services lawyers who, by reason of their character, skill, and ability, contribute to the accomplishments and good fellowship of the College.

“We congratulate David on this outstanding achievement,” said Michael Lacy, who leads Troutman Pepper’s Consumer Financial Services Practice Group.

Jean Noonan, president of the College, said that Anthony was selected “due to [his] experience, preeminence in the field, and [his] repeated and substantial contributions to the promotion of learning and scholarship in consumer financial services law.”

At Troutman, Anthony handles class action and regulatory enforcement litigation against consumer financial services businesses and other highly regulated companies across the United States. He is a frequent writer and speaker on issues of significance in the consumer financial services industry.

Clients in the financial services industries depend on Troutman Pepper’s top-ranked, national team to resolve litigation, provide regulatory guidance and assist with investigations and actions initiated by government agencies. The team has twice been recognized by Law360 as a Consumer Protection Practice Group of the Year.
