CLEVELAND, OH—McGlinchey Stafford is pleased to welcome Jason Bichsel to the firm’s national Consumer Financial Services Compliance practice group as a member (partner) associated with the firm’s Cleveland office. Jason has extensive in-house legal experience, having most recently worked for five years as Corporate Counsel at BMW Financial Services.
Jason’s practice focuses primarily on interpreting the myriad and varied state laws presenting compliance challenges to auto manufacturers’ captive finance companies, particularly in emerging business areas involving vehicle mobility services, vehicle subscriptions, short term leasing, and car and ride sharing. He has experience identifying the competitive and reputational concerns that threaten to derail these businesses before they find solid ground. Jason also helps clients with compliance management and federal regulatory enforcement issues, and has a unique appreciation of the way state dealer franchise laws and financial services licensing impact the business decisions of captive finance companies.
