Frank Salinger

Frank Salinger runs a boutique law practice helping financial services companies and their trade associations unravel federal and state legislative and regulatory knots that impede business. He specializes in legislative and regulatory analysis and political strategy.

Before establishing his practice, he headed the government relations department for a leading issuer of consumer and small business payment cards where he also served as chief corporate compliance officer and directed the community reinvestment act function.

Frank formerly headed the government relations programs for the American Financial Services Association and the Truck Trailer Manufacturers Association. His experience as a legislative staffer, operations-oriented financial services lawyer, chief corporate compliance officer, and outside director of an FDIC-insured state-chartered bank gives him practical insight to policy challenges facing business.

He has authored or coauthored amicus curiae briefs relating to issues of industrywide concern before the Supreme Court of the United States and the First, Third, Fourth, Fifth, and Eleventh Federal Circuits. A frequent writer and speaker on financial services, political and lobbying issues, Frank has presented at American Bar Association meetings in Chicago, New York, London, and Washington, DC.
