What You Need To Know, Now, About California's New Mini-CFPB

California Is About To Rock Your Financial World

You think the CFPB is powerful? Wait till you see what California has created for covered entities doing business in the Golden State.

Join members of the Manatt Financial Services team as they provide, in just 30 minutes, the key features of the new California Consumer Financial Protection Law (CCFPL). Barring unforeseen circumstances, California Governor Gavin Newsom will sign this bill by the end of the month, and portions of the law will take effect in January 2021. So there is no time to waste.

Please join us September 10 for this presentation, the first in a series of planned webinars on the new law and financial regime. In this first session, we will provide an overview of the CCFPL, focusing on the broad new powers granted to the state regulatory agency, the Department of Financial Protection and Innovation (DFPI). Our presentation will be led by Jan Lynn Owen, a Manatt senior advisor and the former commissioner of the California Department of Business Oversight (the current California financial regulator). She will be joined by Richard Gottlieb, head of Manatt’s nationally recognized consumer financial services practice, and senior California consumer finance partners Scott Pearson and Charles Washburn.

The new law is filled with many potential traps for the unwary, and the DFPI will be granted significant rulemaking, licensing and enforcement powers. Don’t miss this and future presentations.
