Anticipated changes to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in a Trump administration may embolden state attorneys general (AGs) and financial regulators to ramp up their already-aggressive enforcement of federal and state consumer financial protection laws. In this webinar, we will review the enforcement authority of state AGs and regulators, survey their enforcement and rulemaking activity in the financial services industry, and discuss what can be done by companies to prepare to defend against state enforcement activity.

Topics will include:

  • Federal laws, including UDAAP, enforceable by state AGs and regulators;
  • Whether state AGs can enforce state laws against federally chartered banks and related preemption issues;
  • States likely to be most active;
  • Practices now under challenge by state AGs and regulators and practices most likely to be challenged in the future; and
  • How companies can prepare to defend against state enforcement challenges.
