Jennifer Sutton is a special counsel in the Financial Services Group with nearly 15 years of bank regulatory and enforcement experience. Based in Washington, D.C., she advises both domestic and foreign financial institutions on all aspects of bank regulatory and compliance issues, oversees and conducts internal investigations and reviews, represents clients in state, federal, and foreign banking investigations and enforcement proceedings, and provides assistance in establishing, maintaining, and monitoring Bank Secrecy Act/Anti-Money Laundering (BSA/AML) and consumer compliance programs. 

Prior to joining the Firm, Ms. Sutton served for nearly 10 years in the Legal Division at the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Federal Reserve). During that time, she was responsible for several complex and precedent-setting enforcement investigations and actions, represented the Federal Reserve in enforcement-related litigation and in inquiries and investigations conducted by Congress and the Office of the Inspector General, and focused on bank regulatory and compliance issues related to BSA/AML and consumer compliance. 

Since joining the Firm in 2013, Ms. Sutton has represented numerous clients before agencies that include the Federal Reserve, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the U.S. Department of Justice, the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, the Office of Foreign Assets Control, and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Over the course of her career, she has established strong working relationships with her former bank regulatory colleagues.
