Tyler also routinely counsels on data security and privacy (GLBA, CCPA-CPRA, GDPR and Reg. P) and consumer contacts (CAN-SPAM and TCPA). Tyler has represented clients in CID and enforcement actions involving the CFPB, DOJ, OCC and state equivalents, including the California DFPI, New York DFS and Massachusetts AG. His matters have involved TILA (Reg. Z), FCRA (Reg. V), ECOA (Reg. B), SCRA, MLA, FDCPA (Reg. F), FinCEN BSA/AML, EFTA (Reg. E), RESPA (Reg. X) and UDAAP statutes under the Dodd-Frank Act.

Among other duties, he supported developing a challenger bank from idea stage through marketing and launch, winding down a major lending product and managing two CFPB enforcement actions. Tyler takes a practical approach to regulatory compliance using an in-depth understanding of client technology and processes, including limitations, to help them adapt to and meet operational challenges posed by an ever-changing regulatory landscape.
