Meredith leads the company's horizontal regulatory legal function supporting all lines of business and corporate staff functions. Ms. Fuchs joined Capital One from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), where she was General Counsel and Acting Deputy Director after serving as Chief of Staff to CFPB Director Richard Cordray. Prior to the CFPB, she held roles as the Chief Investigative Counsel of the United States House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce , as Vice President and General Counsel at The National Security Archive at George Washington University , and as a litigation partner at Wiley, Rein & Fielding in Washington, D.C. She has served as an officer on the D.C. Bar Board of Governors,  is the recipient of the American Library Association's James Madison Award, and was named to the National Law Journal's list of 75 Outstanding Women Lawyers. Ms. Fuchs served as a law clerk for Judge Patricia M. Wald on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals and Judge Paul L. Friedman on the United States District Court for the District of Columbia . 

Before joining Covington, Ms. Solomon served as the Acting Senior Deputy Comptroller and Chief Counsel at the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC). 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 licensing, legislative, and litigation-related matters. She had a leadership role in key OCC initiatives, including the agency’s implementation of the Volcker rule, the 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. Before that, she was Deputy Chief Counsel at the Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS) and, earlier, held senior positions at the OTS’s predecessor agency, the Federal Home Loan Bank Board.
