The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) enforcement landscape has been continuously reshaped by significant rule changes and regulatory developments. Among the latest issues, which mortgage servicing companies, auto finance companies, debt collectors, and other financial services companies need to be aware of, include changes in the Bankruptcy Code and the CFPB’s new rules relating to default mortgage servicing and the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. These changes are expected to bring more complexity and compliance challenges to financial institutions.

Companies and their counsel must be vigilant in keeping track of the crucial considerations that they should take. They must be proactive in planning and developing their compliance programs to prevent exposure to any legal liabilities.

In this LIVE CLE Webcast, financial services lawyers James W. Sandy (McGlinchey Stafford PLLC) and Alan Wolf (The Wolf Firm, A Law Corporation) will provide an in-depth discussion of the evolving CFPB regulations. Speakers will also discuss the implications of recent enforcement efforts in the field of consumer financial protection law. They will also offer up best practices needed to cope with today’s compliance landscape and look to the future under the President Biden administration.

Key topics include:

  • The New Default Mortgage Servicing Rules and Other Regulatory Developments
