After 30 years of enforcing consumer protection laws in the financial sector, government attorney Alice Hrdy has taken a job counseling Morgan, Lewis & Bockius’ financial services clients as a partner in its Washington, D.C., office, the firm announced Monday.

Hrdy’s transition to private practice follows a three-decade career of prosecuting fraud cases against financial institutions at the Federal Trade Commission and supervising banks and nonbanks at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Firm leaders say Hrdy adds to Morgan Lewis’ resources for advising various financial services clients in responding to inquiries by regulatory agencies.
