Kennyhertz Perry Client Alert: Enforcement Powers of the CFPB
Title X of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 (the Act) established the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and authorizes it to supervise certain consumer financial services companies and large depository institutions and their affiliates for consumer protection purposes. The CFPB has been charged with implementing and examination for compliance with Federal consumer finance law.
The CFPB also has extensive authorities to not only investigate violations of federal consumer protection laws but also implement broad enforcement relief.
