Summary

I have been practicing law for 25 years and currently engage in a broad legal practice that includes advising individual clients regarding consumer financial services law, consumer protection, debtor’s rights and in connection with credit card debt, mortgages and other consumer loans. I represent clients in consumer class actions and commercial litigation. During my career on Wall Street, I advised many of the world’s leading commercial banks and their securities broker/dealer affiliates on compliance issues and represented them in connection with key financial services reform legislation pending in the U.S. Congress (Graham-Leach Bliley Act, Dodd Frank Act). More recently, my practice has focused primarily on representing consumers that have been sold financial products and services that were not suitable for their needs, including, home mortgages, home equity lines of credit, credit cards and payday loans. Prior to establishing Lindh Foster, LLC, Eric Lindh Foster spent 22 years practicing banking and securities law in New York, Washington D.C., London and Hong Kong. I am a former regulatory attorney with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and the Securities Industry & Financial Markets Association. I have worked with many of the leading fixed income securities, foreign exchange, commodities and derivatives dealers and provided compliance and legal advice on various types of trading activities and finance transactions. I am a member of the American Bar Association, the Connecticut Bar Association and the New York State Bar Association.
