Thomas Ward
Partner at Sidley Austin LLP


Tom is the most recent Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) Enforcement Director to enter private practice (out of only two in the private sector), having just left the CFPB in 2021 to join Sidley Austin LLP as a partner in Sidley’s Banking and FinTech Group. His practice is focused on consumer financial enforcement and litigation, primarily involving the CFPB. Tom is also the only former CFPB Enforcement Director to serve as a Deputy Assistant Attorney General at the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), where he led criminal consumer protection investigations and prosecutions for the Consumer Protection Branch, which is a primary CFPB referral partner at DOJ for consumer financial criminal referrals.
