A trial and appellate lawyer with a regulatory compliance background in the mortgage industry, Joshua C. Prever works with Fortune 100 and 500 companies on complex commercial litigation matters involving financial services disputes, torts, and securities litigation, as well as regulatory and compliance matters. Financial services clients seek Joshua’s counsel on regulatory and compliance issues related to the mortgage crisis, as well as litigation involving mortgage-backed securities, class actions, and single-borrower actions relating to residential mortgages.
Joshua counsels clients across the country, including some based in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City, and Tampa, as well as global clients in London. His litigation experience includes trials in both Florida state court and the American Arbitration Association involving breach of contract and various tort claims along with handling numerous appellate and trial court proceedings throughout the country.
From Florida, where a number of financial institutions maintain servicing centers, Joshua addresses concerns raised by federal and state regulators—including the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB)—relating to mortgage-servicing issues, as well as litigation matters. As part of his work with these financial institutions, he has developed knowledge about default servicing matters and regulatory compliance issues concerning mortgage foreclosures in all 50 states, managing third-party vendors, creating internal policies and procedures, and implementation of regulatory directives from the CFPB, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the Federal Reserve Bank, and a variety of state regulators.
Joshua has lectured on matters concerning the mortgage industry and in particular the CFPB and the agency’s new role in the mortgage and financial services industry. Joshua also represents clients in complex commercial litigation matters, insurance disputes, bankruptcy proceedings, and SEC and FINRA investigations.
As part of an active pro bono practice, Joshua serves as a guardian ad litem for children. He has also helped Holocaust survivors to obtain restitution benefits through the German Ghetto Work Payment Program in part by organizing several workshops where dozens of lawyers assisted survivors.
