Hudson Cook’s Founding Partners Receive AFSA Service Award

September 17, 2009

HANOVER, Md. — Hudson Cook LLP, a provider of legal compliance services for the financial services industry, announced that the American Financial Services Association (AFSA) awarded its 2009 Distinguished Service Award to the firm’s founding partners, Tom Hudson and Robert Cook.

First presented in 1941, the AFSA Distinguished Service Award is the association’s highest award. It is given to individuals who have contributed to the growth of the financial services industry, while also helping to advance the objectives of its national trade association through volunteer service.

The awards will be presented October 26, at the opening session of AFSA’s Annual Meeting and Leadership Conference at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Washington, D.C.

Jean Noonan, partner in the firm’s Washington, D.C. office, said “I know of no other individuals who are more deserving of this award than Tom and Robert. They have dedicated their entire legal careers to the practice of consumer credit compliance and their counsel has been sought by most of the leading financial institutions.” 

Among their many other achievements, Hudson and Cook founded the firm 12 years ago and dedicated its practice to the specialized area of consumer financial services law. The firm has since grown to a multi-state, 34-lawyer firm while maintaining its focus on the needs of the consumer financial services industry.
