New Year, New Leadership: Regulatory Expectations for 2022

January 14, 2022

Change is upon us. First, the CFPB. Then, the FDIC. Now, the U.S. Trustee Program (USTP).

On January 13, 2022, the Justice Department announced Clifford White’s retirement, the Director of the Justice Department’s U.S. Trustee Program (USTP), effective March 31, 2022. Could the retirement of USTP Director Clifford White be a precursor to dynamic change within the program? What’s the potential impact on bankruptcy case administration and enforcement? 

These are all topics we look forward to addressing at our Webinar on Tuesday, January 25th. John McMickle, Co-Founder of North South Government Strategies, and Cheryl Skigin, Partner AIS Law, LLP, will discuss the recent changes in leadership and the effects they could have on default servicing within financial institutions.

Future of the US Trustee Program

– Resignation of Director White– Political appointees for replacement– Opening for CFPB– Comparison to FDIC Chair resignation– A2J activity at DOJ

Outlook for Student Loan and Bankruptcy Legislation

– Student loan bill most likely to move– Extensions of CARES Act provisions related to Chapter13– Shortened Congressional calendar will frontload legislative activity in early 2022

This event is free for all participants, however, registration I required.
