St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) November 27, 2013
Companies operating in the consumer financial services industry are still getting their sea legs when it comes to preparing for Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) investigations and meeting the obligations of a Civil Investigative Demand (CID). CID subjects must be mobilized to quickly identify, gather and analyze huge amounts of records and information to meet CID deadlines.
Today, Jordan Lawrence, an Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) Alliance Partner, along with Dallas-based law firm Locke Lord announced they will sponsor a December 12th ACC webcast on preparing for a CID. The webcast will feature Tony Alexis, Deputy Assistant Director for Enforcement Field Litigation at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). The session will address the CFPB investigation process and timeline and give perspective on the challenges and potential blind spots companies may face when presented with an investigation or discovery obligation.
About The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) mission is to make markets for consumer financial products and services work for Americans - whether they are applying for a mortgage, choosing among credit cards, or using any number of other consumer financial products. Above all, this means ensuring that consumers get the information they need to make the financial decisions they believe are best for themselves and their families - that prices are clear up front, that risks are visible, and that nothing is buried in fine print. In a market that works, consumers should be able to make direct comparisons among products and no provider should be able to use unfair, deceptive, or abusive practices.
