Nuts and Bolts: An Introduction to FTC and CFPB Consumer Protection Investigations
12 PM EST
The Federal Trade Commission and Consumer Financial Protection Bureau play an active role in enforcing the nation’s federal consumer protection laws. Although they are differently structured, the FTC and CFPB follow many of the same procedures for identifying, investigating, and prosecuting unfair and deceptive practices. This panel will look at how the FTC and CFPB decide to open investigations and the processes by which the agencies acquire information and build cases against their targets. The panel will also discuss how private practitioners who represent the subjects of agency investigations can most effectively advocate for their clients during the pre-litigation stage, including by responding to informational requests, defending depositions, preparing white papers, working effectively with agency attorneys, and negotiating pre-suit settlement. The experienced panel of agency and private practice attorneys will offer their personal insights for both new and more experienced consumer protection attorneys practicing in the regulatory fields.
