Navigating Mortgage M&A: Fair Lending Due Diligence


We are pleased to introduce the latest episode of “Navigating Mortgage M&A,” a collaborative effort between Mayer Brown and Mortgage Advisory Partners. In this episode, “Fair Lending Due Diligence,” hosts Lauren Pryor and Brian Hale are joined by David Skanderson, Vice President at Charles River Associates, and Tori Shinohara, a partner at Mayer Brown and a member of the Consumer Financial Services practice.

In this episode, we discuss key fair lending legal risks to consider when conducting mortgage due diligence, including how companies can employ statistical testing methods to assess these risks. We also explore the inherent nature of these risks and how to determine their materiality, while highlighting what acquirers should look for in terms of controls and monitoring when conducting due diligence on target companies for fair lending risk.
