Partner Nikki Munro summarizes CFPB Supervisory Highlights in Non-Prime Times article

In the March/April edition of Non-Prime Times, the magazine of the National Auto Finance Association, Partner Nikki Munro notes that the focus of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's (CFPB) Summer 2018 Supervisory Highlights was on auto "loan servicing." She cautions that although the CFPB has intentionally weakened its enforcement arm, it remains a very active supervisor and examiner of the auto finance industry, particularly of auto credit servicing activities. The CFPB is assessing whether servicers have engaged in unfair, deceptive or abusive acts or practices (UDAAPs) prohibited by federal law. In particular, recent auto credit servicing examinations identified UDAAPs related to billing statements and wrongful repossessions.

Nikki is a partner in the firm's Maryland office and Editor in Chief of's CARLAW publication. She counsels financial services providers on compliance with consumer financial services laws, including unfair, deceptive, and abusive acts or practices, as well as the investigations, rulemakings, and proceedings of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the Federal Trade Commission.
