In nearly five decades at Morrison & Foerster, I have enjoyed working with wonderful clients and colleagues on an endless array of complex, fascinating projects.

Rick has nearly 50 years of experience advising banks, retailers, insurers, and other companies throughout the United States on the full range of financial services and payment system issues. His practice focuses on retail financial services with a special emphasis on privacy, data security, e-commerce, and financial services joint ventures, as well as compliance and enforcement matters involving the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, federal banking agencies, and the Federal Trade Commission.

Rick has worked closely with clients on every major legislative and regulatory initiative affecting financial services and payment systems since the 1970s. He also has been successful in obtaining important legislative changes and regulatory clarifications relating to many retail banking and consumer lending issues.

Ranked in U.S. News – Best Lawyers, The Legal 500, Chambers USA, and Chambers Global for his work in financial services and privacy and data security, Rick is ranked as a senior statesman, whose clients say, “Rick Fischer is the oracle on financial privacy law” (Chambers USA 2021).
