In collaboration with Husch Blackwell

The CFPB, like many agencies, has many options in its regulatory toolkit. Each regulatory option has benefits and challenges.

So, what is the best path forward? Join our panel of subject matter experts led by our partners at Husch Blackwell as they discuss the different types of guidance recently issued by the CFPB and explain the advantages and disadvantages each regulatory tool within the agency’s toolkit.
