Chief legal officer

As chief legal officer at Digital Risk, Debbie Hoffman oversees the operation of the company’s legal, compliance, risk and licensing functions. She also plays a key role in the development of Digital Risk’s governance, risk and compliance solutions.

Since 2013, Hoffman has worked in a global capacity for Mphasis, Digital Risk’s parent company, bringing legal projects in house that were previously outsourced to law firms. Under Hoffman’s leadership, Digital Risk significantly reduced licensing costs by more than 50% by reevaluating and restructuring the model of origination licensing, renewals and continuing education. Hoffman also oversees Digital Risk’s Legal Internship Program, which she designed and implemented. The program offers up to 10 law students the opportunity to gain firsthand knowledge of the corporate legal department at Digital Risk’s headquarters.

An established thought leader in the mortgage industry, Hoffman has been featured in a multitude of trade and news publications nationwide, and frequently serves as a speaker at various industry events. Outside of her responsibilities at Digital Risk, Hoffman is the sponsor liaison and co-publications chair for the Association of Corporate Counsel Financial Services Committee and is a member of the MBA’s Regulatory & Compliance Subcommittee.
