Arnstein & Lehr Chicago Partner John L. Ropiequet was quoted in an article appearing in the December 4 issue of Bureau of National Affairs’ Bankruptcy Reporter. The article, “Questions Regarding Privilege Claims Raised as CFPB Begins Examinations,” discusses the role of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (“CFPB”) as a federal financial institution regulator and concerns for whether information shared by a bank with CFPB examiners will remain privileged. The article includes Mr. Ropiequet’s viewpoints regarding the unlikelihood of that privilege to be waived when a bank is compelled to share documents with examiners.
