Nate Viebrock builds on a career of diverse legal experiences to offer his clients creative and actionable legal advice. Nate’s career in public service included a clerkship in Chicago at the Cook County Public Defender’s Office and employment at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in Washington, DC. Nate has also served as in-house product and regulatory counsel at a nationally recognized FinTech company and advised corporate clients on consumer protection at two of America’s largest law firms.
Nate is an accomplished practitioner in consumer financial services law and has experience guiding clients on state and federal regulatory issues. He has represented consumers and advised clients on responsible product development in the areas of mortgage origination and servicing, auto finance, consumer lending, debt sales, and collections matters. He is well-versed in counseling clients on matters related to UDAAP, TILA, RESPA, FCRA, TCPA, ECOA, and FDCPA compliance. As an associate general counsel at a publicly-traded financial technology company, Nate frequently advised his company on marketing and loan origination questions in addition to issues related to marketplace lending, broker-dealer and investment advisor services, state licensing, usury, data security, and bank partnership lending models. Having worked in-house and as a federal banking regulator, Nate is uniquely positioned to provide clients with insights into the goals of government regulators while also understanding the challenges that complex regulations can cause for financial services providers.
Nate has also led high-stakes internal investigations and counseled clients through the duration of state and federal government exams, investigations, and enforcement actions. Together with his experience clerking at three nationally recognized public defender offices, Nate understands that a government investigation or indictment can be devastating for clients. Nate emphatically advocates for justice and will hold the government accountable in defense of his clients. He has counseled individuals and companies on all stages of interacting with prosecutors and regulators, from criminal arrest to post-conviction relief and from civil investigation to trial preparation and settlement.
Nate is passionate about serving his community through his legal advocacy and frequently represents individuals that have been subjected to corporate or government malfeasance. He has represented individuals pursuing recoveries from some of the country’s largest lenders, energy companies, insurance providers, and staffing agencies.
