MoFo ReEnforcement analyzes actions by state and federal regulators introduces MoFo ReEnforcement, a new blog addressing enforcement matters affecting the financial services sector.  The blog can be found at or on Twitter at @MoFoReEnforce.

Since the enactment of the Dodd-Frank Act and the birth of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), financial institutions and non-bank financial services companies have been under increasing regulatory scrutiny.  MoFo ReEnforcement provides news and commentary on enforcement matters, including actions taken by federal regulators, such as the CFPB and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), as well as actions taken by state agencies, such as the New York Department of Financial Services and state attorneys general.

The blog is co-edited by David Fioccola and James McGuire, partners and co-chairs of the firm’s financial services litigation practice group, and James Bergin, financial services litigation partner.

“We’ve conceived MoFo ReEnforcement as a resource for financial services companies to stay current with enforcement trends,” said Mr. Fioccola, co-chair of MoFo’s financial services litigation practice.

Mr. McGuire, co-chair of MoFo’s financial services litigation practice, added: “With enforcement targeting the financial sector at record levels, it seemed the right time to launch a fresh platform for helping clients keep a running account of trends and key developments. We’re hoping that MoFo ReEnforcement will be a compelling and useful resource for professionals across the industry, including those charged with compliance, operations, and legal affairs.”
