"CFPB and DOJ Team Up on Enforcement for First Time" for West LegalEdcenter

This event has already occurred.

On May 7, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York announced a joint law enforcement effort in the U.S. District of New York involving a debt-settlement business and its principals. This marks the first time that the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has brought criminal charges arising from a CFPB investigation.

This webinar will demonstrate the significance of this joint enforcement effort and its implications:

  • The CFPB will share information with federal criminal prosecutors;
  • The DOJ will act on referrals that it receives from the CFPB;
  • The CFPB and DOJ have prioritized collaboration; and
  • The CFPB's invetigative fact finding may yield evidence for a criminal case brought by the DOJ.
