Alan S. Kaplinsky


Christopher J. Willis


On January 4, 2012, President Obama appointed Richard Cordray as the first Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Since that time, the CFPB has been involved in a whirlwind of regulatory, supervisory and enforcement activities. In addition to the CFPB, state and other federal regulators are pursuing initiatives focused on consumer financial services. This year’s Institute will explore in detail the Bureau’s activities as well as other developments in consumer financial services regulation and litigation.


  • Explore the ways in which the Dodd-Frank Act and the CFPB’s activities will affect your practice
  • Get tips on preparing for a CFPB examination and responding to a CFPB civil investigative demand
  • Study the latest regulatory and enforcement initiatives of federal and state regulators, including the CFPB, FTC, DOJ, OCC, FDIC, and state attorneys general
  • Identify the regulatory and litigation priorities of consumer advocates in the coming year
  • Understand the continuing implications of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion and the pending case American Express v. Italian Colors for consumer arbitration agreements
  • Get updates on the latest class actions and state attorneys general lawsuits against financial services companies
  • Survey class certification and class action settlement developments

Mr. Kaplinsky will chair the Institute for the 18th consecutive year, and Mr. Willis will speak on two panels, "Fair Lending" and "CFPB Enforcement Update."
