Pepper partners Richard P. Eckman, Daniel G. Murray and Audrey D. Wisotsky will be presenting the teleconference “Consumer Protection Provision of the Dodd-Frank Act” on May 17. This program is being hosted by Lorman Education Services and will begin at 1:00 p.m. EDT.
The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, signed into law by President Obama on July 21, 2010, overhauls the United States financial system. The Act includes numerous provisions intended to protect consumers. The Act's requirements apply to consumer financial products and services such as mortgage loans, private student loans, payday loans, credit cards and other financial services. The Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection established by the Act, is given extraordinary rule making authority and broad discretion to enact regulations both to establish the types of entities subject to the Act and to adopt rules intended to provide consumer protections. The transfer of power to the CFPB will occur in July 2011. The Act, and the ensuing regulations, will affect the offer of consumer financial products and services for years to come. Attendees of this live audio conference will learn how the legislation is likely to affect you. The program will review many important aspects of the Act, including the powers of the CFPB, the industries affected or expected to be affected, the consumer protections provided for in the Act and those that are expected to be subject to further regulation.
