Evan Drexler, a Director with Treliant, has extensive legal advisory experience in providing banking and mortgage litigation support to law firms and financial services companies.
At Treliant, Evan has managed banking litigation matters in connection with the expert analysis and trial phases of litigation. His work has included drafting expert reports, preparing expert witnesses for testimony at depositions, and responding to loan-level defect claims asserted by the U.S. government and non-government entities against a top U.S. bank. He has also assisted law firms with developing litigation strategies for some of the largest banking cases to proceed to trial in recent years.
In addition to providing litigation support, Evan has participated in an independent Bank Secrecy Act/Anti-Money Laundering (BSA/AML) audit of an international financial institution’s U.S. operations, which included a review of its governance structure, policies, procedures, and trade transaction files. He has also managed a team of auditors during an independent audit of a financial institution’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) compliance program, which included traveling internationally to assess its system of internal OFAC controls, governance structure, and training program.
Prior to joining Treliant, Evan practiced law at Rivero Mestre LLP in Miami, Florida. His practice focused on consumer finance litigation matters, including foreclosures, quiet title actions, and claims arising under the Truth in Lending Act (TILA). He also practiced law at Gunster in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, focusing on matters related to the secondary mortgage market, including responding to mortgage repurchase demands and appealing mortgage insurance rescissions on behalf of a major depository bank.
Evan earned his JD from the University of Florida’s Levin College of Law and his BA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He is admitted to the bar associations of Florida and New York.
