Los Angeles Managing Partner Douglas Thompson will present June 15 at the California Bankers Association’s Directors Conference & 50th Annual Bank Counsel Seminar. The conference will combine the Directors Conference and the Bank Counsel Seminar for a three-day event June 14-16.

The Directors Conference will begin with a roundtable on current issues and offer panels on the opportunities and challenges on fintech, current liability insurance issues for directors, regulatory development updates, cyber security and more.

The Bank Counsel Seminar will feature panels on various banking issues, such as lender liability, high-risk customers, recent developments in bank operations and CRE lending, ADA compliance and litigation developments, and more. Thompson will co-present on the panel “CFPB 2017 – Agency Priorities and Areas of Emphasis, and Industry Planning Moving Forward,” which will examine the effects of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) on the financial services sector, the implications of the Trump administration on the CFPB, and other aspects of the CFPB’s structure and future financial regulation activities.

“Currently there are a number of legislative and Department Of Treasury proposals which may lead to dramatic changes in the structure of the CFPB, its leadership, its priorities and its operations in 2017 and beyond,” said Thompson. “While financial institutions must remain focused on the existing regulatory environment and CFPB initiatives, we also should carefully examine potential evolution of the agency and enhancements which can benefit all financial marketplace participants.”  

At Bryan Cave, Thompson represents financial services institutions and other businesses defending against putative consumer class action matters in federal and state courts across the country. He counsels clients with respect to regulatory and government agency investigations and other complex commercial disputes. For the firm's Los Angeles office, Thompson also leads initiatives focused on strategic growth, client service, diversity and professional development.
