In Part II of our two-part podcast, we discuss how we expect Rohit Chopra, if confirmed by the Senate, to approach his new role as CFPB Director.  We look at the possible implications of positions taken by Mr. Chopra as FTC Commissioner for how he will use the CFPB’s statutory authorities, his likely approach to student lending based on his tenure as CFPB Student Loan Ombudsman, and how his approach to enforcement is likely to differ from that of former Director Kraninger.

Ballard Spahr attorney Alan Kaplinsky hosts the conversation, with Chris Willis, Co-Chair of the firm’s Consumer Financial Services Practice Group, John Culhane, a partner in the Group, and Heather Klein, an associate in the Group.
