As one of the preeminent CFPB practices in the United States, our team helps leading banks and financial services companies resolve CFPB issues and public enforcement actions.
WilmerHale's Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) Practice is consistently recognized as one of the leading CFPB practices in the nation by Chambers USA, Best Lawyers and other leading publications. We represent banks, nonbank financial institutions, card issuers, mortgage and student loan servicing companies, consumer reporting agencies, emerging payments companies, and other financial services providers subject to the CFPB's oversight in public enforcement matters. Our attorneys advise clients in nonpublic CFPB examinations, provide guidance on the interpretation and application of CFPB regulations, and counsel funds that invest in the consumer finance sector.
Clients come to our seasoned team for assistance with many challenges presented by the CFPB's broad regulatory, examination and enforcement authority. Our practice leaders include former senior CFPB personnel who helped design, build and set priorities for the CFPB during and after its inception. The unique insight they provide is crucial when addressing matters with an agency that has a short history, a complex set of laws to enforce, and a mission that has led to increased scrutiny of every corner of the financial services industry.
