A Venable LLP Webinar

Since opening its doors, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has conducted dozens of examinations of banks and, for the first time for a federal regulator, non-bank financial services providers. As a result of this supervisory activity, the CFPB has ordered more than $350 million in consumer relief and, in some cases, brought follow-up public enforcement actions. How a company prepares for and manages a CFPB exam can make the difference between a passing grade and an enforcement action. This webinar will take a close look at the interplay between the CFPB’s supervision and enforcement work and what that means for companies that are subject to examination. Among other things, we will address:

  • How the CFPB’s Supervision, Enforcement, and Fair Lending Division is organized and the roles played by the Office of Enforcement and Office of Supervision
  • Strategies for navigating supervision examinations, appealing examination findings, and averting public enforcement actions
  • The differences between the two offices and how to interact with each

Participants are encouraged to engage in the conversation by submitting questions throughout the live event and will receive a copy of the presentation and other materials following the webinar.
