R. Glenn Knirsch

Glenn Knirsch practices in the areas of commercial litigation, consumer defense, compliance and employment, and has done so since he graduated from the Cleveland-Marshall College of Law in 2006.

Following law school, Glenn worked for a debt collection law firm in Cleveland, Ohio in its litigation department, where he defended the firm and its clients from federal claims premised on alleged violations of the FDCPA, TCPA, TILA, and FCRA.  He also assisted the firm in developing and maintaining its internal compliance management system.

After four years with the debt collection law firm, Mr. Knirsch spent the next four years in both Cleveland and Washington, D.C. concentrating on compliance matters related to all areas of consumer finance, including the origination, servicing and collection of consumer loans.  He has extensive experience developing loan documentation, servicing systems and conducting compliance audits in preparation for examinations from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).  Glenn also has significant experience in responding on behalf of his clients to government investigations by state and federal regulators, including the CFPB, FTC, OCC and Department of Justice. In addition, Glenn represents employers in cases involving discrimination, harassment, medical leaves and disability accommodations, contract disputes, and wage payment issues before state and federal courts.

Glenn has published articles for the Consumer Finance Law, Quarterly Report, the Ohio State Bar Association, and has presented to the American Bar Association and other organizations in areas specifically related to consumer finance.  He is a member of the American Bar Association, Ohio Bar Association, and ACA International.

He is licensed to practice in all Ohio State courts, and the United States District Courts for the Northern District of Ohio, Southern District of Ohio, Western District of Michigan, Northern District of Indiana, and the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals.   

Glenn joined Sessions, Fishman, Nathan & Israel in 2015.
