Matthew Cohen, Esquire, to Speak On the Specifics of New Rules Mandated by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) at the NJ State Bar Association Annual Meeting in Atlantic City

Little Silver, NJ: Matthew Cohen, a noted Monmouth County attorney and principal of Two Rivers Title Company in Little Silver, NJ, will be leading a discussion on the recent new rules established by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) pertaining to residential real estate settlements, and the potential effect on title insurers and real estate attorneys throughout the state.  The presentation will take place during the New Jersey State Bar Association annual meeting on May 15th at the Borgata Casino's Water Club in Atlantic City, NJ.

Cohen will specifically address how the upcoming CFPB rule changes will affect attorneys who represent clients buying and selling real estate during the settlement process.  Such changes include requirements for internal financial controls, handling of privacy issues, as well as new settlement forms which will be required during the transaction.  Cohen will also discuss the American Land Tile Association's (ALTA) "Seven Pillars of Best Practices" that address these changes, and how attorneys and title professionals can be compliant by following them. Presenting with Cohen will be F. Bradford Batcha, Esq., of the law firm Batcha & Batcha, LLC in Red Bank NJ.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is a component of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street  Reform and Consumer Protection Act Public Law No. 111-203 (Dodd-Frank Act).  The act was signed into federal law by President Barack Obama on July 21, 2010.
