One of Ballard Spahr’s CFPB Monitor posts was rated among the week’s best on the corporate and securities blogosphere. In the post, Ballard Spahr partner Christopher J. Willis discusses the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s ex parte presentation policy, which requires anyone who communicates with the CFPB about a pending rulemaking to submit a written copy of the presentation on the public rulemaking record. Mr. Willis writes that exceptions to the policy could negate the stated goal of transparency.
