Moorari Shah Receives David H. Fenig Distinguished Service in Advocacy Award

Equipment Leasing and Finance Association

The Equipment Leasing and Finance Association (ELFA) selected partner Moorari Shah for its 2019 David H. Fenig Distinguished Service in Advocacy Award. The award honors individuals who have made significant contributions to the association’s advocacy efforts to promote sound public policies for the equipment finance industry.

Shah is recognized for his extraordinary contributions to the association’s state advocacy program. He has assisted the industry in promoting its policy objectives in a number of ways, most notably through providing analysis and guidance to ELFA, its membership and specific issue workgroups. In addition, his willingness to assist ELFA state negotiations has been invaluable to the association’s success on a number of critical issues.

For example, Shah has advised on industry exemptions to onerous financial disclosure requirements in California and New Jersey. He leads ELFA’s California DBO Workgroup, which represents the industry with comments and guidance to the California Department of Business Oversight. In addition, he leads ELFA’s newly created California Attorney General Privacy Workgroup.  

Shah has been active on a number of committees and subcommittees, including the ELFA Legal Committee, the State Legislative and Regulatory Affairs Subcommittee and the Equipment Finance Regulatory and Compliance Subcommittee, and he serves as the Co-Chair of the Motor Vehicle Subcommittee.

He also has made many presentations and participated on numerous panels at the ELFA Legal Forum, an annual event for attorneys working in the equipment finance industry, and other ELFA events. At the 2019 ELFA Legal Forum in April, he participated on panels discussing the implications of consumer privacy law and current state legislative and regulatory agendas affecting equipment financers and lessors. He has also contributed articles on legal topics to the association’s Equipment Leasing & Finance magazine, including an analysis of applicable state licensing laws.

Shah was formally recognized during a ceremony at ELFA’s Capitol Connections event on Wednesday, May 15, 2019, in Washington, D.C.
