CFPB Investigations In Focus: Navigating CIDs

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau was established in July 2011, with the mission of making “markets for consumer financial products and services work for Americans.” Over the last two years, it has been actively engaged in carrying out this mission using the arsenal of implements in its proverbial “tool belt.” From rulemaking and supervision to high-profile enforcement actions,the CFPB has been grabbing headlines as it has charted a new course in consumer protection.
