Sandler added, "Amanda, Laurie and Ben join an extremely talented group of recently promoted partners that will ensure that BuckleySandler continues to provide high expertise and outstanding client service for many years to come."

BuckleySandler's newly elected Partners:

Prior to joining BuckleySandler, Olson was the Deputy Assistant Director for the Office of Regulations at the CFPB where he played a principal role in the development and issuance of mortgage industry rules mandated by the Dodd-Frank Act. He also served as counsel for the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve where he played a leading role in the development of new rules governing the credit card industry. Prior to that, he worked in the Federal Trade Commission's Division of Financial Practices where he investigated and prepared enforcement actions against financial service providers for unfair and deceptive practices and other violations of consumer financial protection laws. Olson received his J.D. from Georgetown University in 2001 (magna cum laude, Order of the Coif) and B.A. from Tulane University in 1997 (cum laude).

Amanda M. Raines represents financial institutions in a wide variety of matters, including federal and state enforcement agency investigations and litigation, private civil and class action litigation, regulatory examinations, and corporate internal investigations. She has represented clients in matters involving the Department of Justice, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the Securities and Exchange Commission, federal and state bank regulators, and state attorneys general, as well as in cases involving unfair, deceptive, and abusive acts and practices, securities fraud, tax fraud, the Fair Housing Act, the Equal Credit Opportunity Act, the Civil Rights Act, and unfair and deceptive trade practices statutes. In addition, Raines counsels clients on risk management strategies and compliance with various federal and state laws and regulations affecting the financial services industry. She received her J.D. from Case Western Reserve University School of Law (magna cum laude, Order of the Coif) in 2003 and B.A. from Rhodes College in 2000.

Randell currently represents a defendant in a landmark FCPA case brought by the Securities and Exchange Commission, scheduled for trial in July 2014. In 2011-2012, Randell represented a defendant at trial in the FCPA Sting case, the largest FCPA criminal enforcement proceeding against individuals ever brought by the Department of Justice, successfully obtaining a hung jury mistrial and the later dismissal of all charges by the DOJ. Randell has been involved in several other FCPA investigations and related representations, as well as numerous other representations of companies and individuals in criminal and civil cases. She received her J.D. from Yale Law School in 2005 and B.S. from Yale University in 2002.
