Steven Lockhart represents financial institutions in disputes, including bank fraud and regulatory investigations, in local, state and federal venues. Working with traditional banks, as well as non-traditional lending companies, Steven develops internal policies, procedures and controls, advises on risk management issues, and leads a team which handles litigation, arbitration and bankruptcy proceedings.

Clients hire Steven for an immediate problem in one jurisdiction and rehire him as their companies grow and issues expand across the United States. He is known for designing financially smart, common sense business solutions that are tailored to his clients’ issues and objectives. Steven is preemptive in working with clients to avoid problems and, because he has a deep understanding of their businesses, industry and changes in the regulatory environment, he is a sought-after advisor to senior executives and the legal department.

His experience includes representing financial institutions in a variety of regulatory matters involving local municipalities, state governing bodies and federal agencies, such as the Texas Office of the Consumer Credit Commissioner, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the Special Inspector General for the Troubled Asset Relief Program (SIGTARP) and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.

Operators

AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
