In that role and in her prior role as Deputy Chief Counsel, Ms. Solomon’s work included developing and drafting regulations and advising on issues involving bank powers, structure, compliance, and preemption as well as on licensing, legislative, and litigation-related matters. She had a leadership role in key OCC initiatives, including the agency’s implementation of the Volcker rule, recent fintech chartering initiative, and federal preemption efforts. She also worked extensively with other Federal agencies on joint or collaborative regulatory projects. Ms. Solomon joined the OCC in 1995.
