We first share our perspective on Director Chopra’s approach to his leadership role and use of the CFPB’s authority, his priorities, and political dynamics impacting the CFPB. We then discuss the CFPB’s activity during Director Chopra’s initial months in office, including its request for information on “junk fees” and criticism of overdraft and credit card late fee practices, requests to large tech firms regarding payment services, fintech focus (and use of risk-based supervision), use of UDAAP to address market competition, orders seeking information from buy-now-pay-later companies, changes to UDAAP exam procedures to target non-credit discrimination, encouragement of state AGs, exams of institutional student lending, and injunctive relief focus.

Alan Kaplinsky, Ballard Spahr Senior Counsel, hosts the conversation, joined by Michael Gordon and Tom Burke, partners in the firm’s Consumer Financial Services Group, and Michelle Hogan, an associate in the firm’s Litigation Group.
