The company was one of the top lobbying firms involved in the financial reform debate around 2009-2010,[5] which involved laws like the Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.[7] Clark Lytle represented more financial services clients than any other lobbying firm during that period of time.[verification needed]
