In the five years since its inception, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has established itself as an aggressive regulator that uses its powers of rulemaking, supervision and enforcement in an effort to remake the market for consumer financial products and services. It has brought over 125 enforcement actions resulting in over $10 billion of consumer remediation. Join us as we discuss the nature of the CFPB’s authorities, how it uses them and what to expect from the CFPB in the future. We’ll look behind the statute to explore how the CFPB makes important decisions, how it has used its new powers to prohibit “abusive” conduct, what parties it seeks to hold responsible for legal violations and what changes the election might hold.

Our lawyers will discuss issues including:

  • Covered products, services and persons – what products can the CFPB regulate, and who can be held responsible when legal violations are identified?
  • Agency tools, including rulemaking, supervision and enforcement – what are the CFPB’s powers and how does it decide which tool to use?
  • How the agency determines enforcement priorities – a look inside the Office of Enforcement’s strategic planning process
  • UDAAP (unfair, deceptive or abusive acts or practices) – including how the CFPB has used its new abusiveness authority
  • What to expect next
    • What the recent PHH decision holding the CFPB’s structure unconstitutional could mean
    • How the election and the end of Director Cordray’s term might impact the CFPB
    • What the agency’s priorities are likely to be in the near term
