RMAI is pleased to announce retaining the full-service firm of Cozen O’Connor for attorney general (AG) representation. Cozen O’Connor represents some of the biggest companies in the world, and RMAI and RMAI members will benefit from Cozen O’Connor’s extensive experience and established relationships.

Paul Connell is RMAI’s primary contact with Cozen O’Connor. Connell will attend RMAI’s upcoming Executive Summit and participate in the State & Federal Legislative & Regulatory Update on Thursday, August 4, 2022.

Connell is looking forward to working with RMAI and commented, “As a former Chief Deputy Attorney General, it has always been clear to me the important role that RMAI plays in the credit and collection ecosystem. With an aggressive class of State Attorneys General presently in office and 31 AGs for election this fall, there is no question the industry will see close oversight, often in conjunction with the FTC and CFPB. I am delighted and honored to have the opportunity to work with RMAI and its members directly to assist with questions and issues surrounding AGs.” In addition to being a former Chief Deputy Attorney General, Connell is a trial lawyer and strategic advisor defending clients in high-stakes, multi-state investigations and regulatory enforcement matters brought by state AGs, the U.S. Department of Justice, and other federal regulators.

RMAI Executive Director, Jan Stieger, noted, “Networking with AGs is a critical component of RMAI’s robust advocacy effort. RMAI is actively involved in the AG world and has a history of inviting AGs to present at Executive Summits and Annual Conferences. Further, RMAI representatives attend annual meetings of the Attorney General Alliance. We welcome Cozen O’Connell to RMAI and Paul Connell to our Executive Summit.”
