Resident in the New Orleans office, Jonathan Sparks helps supervise the firm’s consumer financial services licensing projects. This entails a wealth of experience with the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System (NMLS), working with companies through change-of-control scenarios, obtaining and maintaining 50-state licenses, and managing renewals.
A licensed, non-practicing attorney, Jonathan has worked in the licensing field for a decade. His prior work with mortgage licensure and general compliance background, paired with his in-house experience, affords him insight into his client’s daily operations and challenges. He created the licensing department at his previous position from scratch and grew that team for more than eight years. He has also successfully obtained licenses for overseas operations.
