BuckleySandler Webinar: The CFPB in Focus - Where Are We Now and What Lies Ahead?

  • December 8, 2011

In this webinar, we reviewed the current status of the CFPB and its progress to date, including an overview of the scope of its powers, stated priorities, key staff, and the issuance of the CFPB's new Supervision and Examination Manual. We also discussed the CFPB's enforcement powers: how it intends to enforce consumer protection laws, its plans to collaborate with other federal and state regulators, and concerns regarding how the CFPB will protect confidential data provided by industry in examination, enforcement, and other contexts. We concluded by projecting what lies ahead for the CFPB, including enforcement of new UDAAP standards and powers in the absence of a confirmed Director.
