The incoming administration promises big changes to federal consumer protection administration and enforcement. On January 5, 2017, Crowell & Moring’s Advertising & Product Risk Management Group hosted a webinar in which they discussed likely changes on the horizon to the Federal Trade Commission, Federal Communications Commission, and Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

What can we expect to see with new commissioners? How will the newly reconstituted agencies manage ongoing legal battles affecting their jurisdiction that carry over from the Obama Administration? Our team engaged in a discussion highlighting our predictions and possible outcomes that will drive consumer protection enforcement and litigation for the next four years. We have highlighted where the government is likely to pull back, and where it may stay the course.
- The FTC’s and FCC’s new majorities and what that portends for privacy and data security enforcement.
- The uncertain future of Net Neutrality.
- Will there be a CFPB by 2018 and if so, what will it look like?
- What will the FTC focus on in 2017 and beyond?
- The (likely) rise of the state AGs.
- Into the breach: will private litigation fill the gap?
Christopher Cole, Peter Miller, and Kristin Madigan conducted this webinar.
