Overview

Munsch Hardt has an industry-leading team seasoned in counseling clients on the ever-growing array of statutes and regulations that govern consumer financial products and services. Our lawyers are intimately familiar with these laws and regulations, and by virtue of the intensity of our work in this field, we are able to offer an unparalleled view across the playing field as companies seek to tackle current challenges and look around the corner to address emerging risks.

Collectively, our clients represent a cross-section of the financial services industry, including traditional financial services companies, as well as non-financial companies that might incidentally provide financial services to their customers. 

We also represent companies supporting the consumer financial services industry, but which do not provide services directly to consumers. By regularly assisting our client in navigating the complex maze of Consumer Finance, we are accustomed to addressing the following laws and regulations: 

  • Usury & Consumer Credit 
  • Regulated Consumer Loans
  • Payday Loans
  • Secondary Mortgage Loans
  • Home Equity Loans
  • Retail Installment Sales Financing
  • Manufactured Home Credit Sales and Loans
  • Property Tax Lien Transfers and Loans
  • Motor Vehicle Retail Installment Financing 
  • Floor Planning


Our Firm offers knowledgeable and skilled attorneys who are up to speed on the latest litigation trends and issues affecting the industry. We are also able to offer focused litigators who manage complex cases in jurisdictions throughout Texas. Our team also represents creditors involved in administrative actions brought by the Texas Office of Consumer Credit Commissioner (OCCC).
