James Huber

James Huber is well-recognized as a top industry-expert attorney and  works heavily in the compliance field; helping electronic payment processing companies avoid getting fined, arrested, violate rules, or get sued from internal or external threats. Drawing on experience from white-collar criminal defense, civil litigation, and general business advise, including heavy litigation in the payments space, Huber successfully advises his clients how to avoid litigation.  But some clients contact Global before it’s too late, and Huber therefore litigates often.  That includes defending and pursuing electronic payments companies.  Huber is also well-versed in mergers and acquisitions, compliance, contract review, internal operations, regulatory defense including FTC, CFPB, DOJ, AG, Class-Actions, and all legal aspects that affect a business.
