Washington, DC – February 2, 2017 – Treliant Risk Advisors is pleased to announce that it has named Benjamin “B.J.” McComas a Principal of the firm, reflecting his leadership role in Treliant’s mortgage litigation, regulatory risk, and compliance practices. 

 “Mortgage lending continues to undergo significant change with new delivery channels, policies, opportunities, and risks,” said Treliant CEO Andrew L. Sandler. “B.J. keeps Treliant on the cutting edge of mortgage litigation and compliance in this ever-changing environment. His new role recognizes his value to our clients and his leadership role in our firm.”

B.J. McComas has more than a decade of experience working as an attorney and consultant to banks and mortgage companies. He currently assists clients in ongoing litigation regarding residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS), while also working more broadly with parties analyzing mortgage repurchase and regulatory risk. Prior to joining Treliant, he practiced law at a full-service corporate law firm, where he primarily focused on high-volume mortgage put-back projects, mortgage insurance rescission disputes, and mortgage securitization litigation. He also led a mortgage litigation team at a leading US law firm in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and practiced law in Ohio for five years where he specialized in the defense of consumer fraud litigation.

“B.J. has established strong, lasting relationships with many of the country’s most prominent lawyers and firms that count on Treliant for mortgage support,” said Susanna K. Tisa, Treliant’s Chief Business Officer. “His dedication to our clients coupled with his focus on growing our mortgage litigation and mortgage compliance service areas makes him ideally suited for this position.”
