Is the Attorney-Client Privilege Under Attack by the CFPB?

Speakers: Richard P. Eckman, Stephen G. Harvey and Frank A. Mayer III


On June 28, 2012, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) promulgated a final rule to codify protections for privileged information submitted to it by the financial institutions it regulates. The rule follows the CFPB's announced expectation that, upon request, the entities the CFPB supervises will disclose privileged material to it.

Lawyers and compliance officers for entities subject to CFPB supervision should pay careful attention to the new rule and how it may affect them.
