Fielding Huseth represents clients in complex business litigation and white-collar criminal prosecution. Fielding began his career in New York as an enforcement attorney for the state’s top financial services regulator and then as a litigator with a prominent boutique. He brings strong legal writing and advocacy experience to the firm’s clients.

Overview

Fielding’s primary practice areas are complex commercial litigation and white-collar criminal defense. He also has significant experience in internal investigations, regulatory compliance, and other regulatory matters. His clients span banking, insurance, energy, and health care, among other industries. 

As a former enforcement attorney for the New York State Department of Financial Services (DFS), Fielding assisted in running investigations of wide-ranging banking and insurance practices, including with relation to mortgage lending, lender-placed insurance, and monitor-ship compliance.  In private practice in both New York and North Carolina, Fielding has successfully represented several individuals and businesses at all stages of litigation in state and federal court, as well as in government enforcement actions brought by the SEC, CFTC, FINRA, and U.S. Attorneys’ Offices. 

Fielding prides himself on his persuasive writing abilities and creative advocacy techniques. He attributes part of his writing and advocacy success to his several-year career in public-policy lobbying and organizing before he enrolled in law school.
