Jean Veta Appointed to ABA Standing Committee on the Federal Judiciary

August 20, 2020

WASHINGTONCovington partner Jean Veta has been appointed by American Bar Association President Patricia Lee Refo to serve a three-year term on the ABA’s Standing Committee on the Federal Judiciary, representing the D.C. Circuit.


The committee, which has performed its role in the judicial nomination process since 1953, provides an impartial evaluation of the professional qualifications of all nominees to the Supreme Court of the United States, circuit courts of appeals, district courts (including territorial district courts) and the Court of International Trade. The committee assesses each prospective nominee's integrity, professional competence, and judicial temperament and submits its evaluation rating to the White House, the Senate Judiciary Committee, and the U.S. Department of Justice to assist in the confirmation process. Appointment to the committee is based on a lawyer’s possession of the highest professional stature and integrity, and members have varied professional experiences and backgrounds.


Ms. Veta defends financial institutions and their officers and directors in civil and regulatory enforcement matters, government investigations, internal corporate investigations, and congressional investigations. She represents clients on the full range of safety and soundness issues, UDAAP and other consumer compliance issues, fair lending, anti-money laundering, and securities issues, as well as FIRREA and False Claims Act investigations. She regularly handles matters before the CFPB and other federal bank regulators, the Department of Justice, SEC, FTC, and other enforcement agencies.
