The National Law Review names Womble Bond Dickinson LLP as a Go-To Thought Leader in the field of immigration law. The firm has provided extensive coverage of the USCIS’ EAD work permits throughout 2022; in particular, attorneys Jennifer Cory, Susan Waller Ramos, and Jeffrey B. Widdison authored “New USCIS Rule Automatically Extends Some Noncitizens’ Work Permits for Up to 540 Days,” which saw a substantial readership this year and serves as a valuable reference for lawyers and professionals across the US.

The National Law Review names Womble Bond Dickinson’s Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) team a Go-To Thought leader for the group’s prolific coverage of new trends in FCRA class action litigation and regulatory changes. Womble’s attorney authors explain trends in FCRA rulings across the federal circuit courts and examine how government agencies including the CFPB’s (Consumer Financial Protection Bureau) and the FTC’s (Federal Trade Commission) provide guidance on FCRA enforcement. Topics range from CFPB Consent Orders, the FTC’s requests for commentary on proposed changes, the section of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES act) which amends the FCRA, and the thousands of cases filed annually against banks, credit reporting agencies, debt collectors, retailers, and other organizations.  Regular FCRA contributors from Womble Bond Dickinson include Nadia Adams, Nikku D. Khalifian,  Sarah Meyer,  Nicole Su, and Jason D. Wyman.

Dominic Dhil Panakal was named a 2019 National Law Review Go-To thought leader for his writings on data privacy and cybersecurity. He showcases his expertise on Womble Bond’s Hey Data Data blog, covering this quickly evolving and rapidly growing area with articles covering compliance and concerns on the horizon. With insightful and thought-provoking analysis of AI, Machine learning, as well as an eye to General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) regulations, his work is a great way for National Law Review readers to stay informed on cybersecurity issues.

Eric Troutman and his work on the TCPAland blog has been selected for the National Law Review’s Go-To Thought Leadership Award. Mr. Troutman writes in a lively and engaging style on TCPA (Telephone Consumer Protection Act)  litigation and the fate of the ATDS (Automatic Telephone Dialing System) definition. His coverage is extensive and his commitment is impressive: we’ve even gotten posts he wrote at a wedding! Subscribe the to Womble Bond Dickinson's TCPAland Blog here.
