Our team has assembled a convenient overview of the massive Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.
The Act provides expansive authority for regulators to define the critical details to implement the legislation. The rules and definitions ultimately promulgated by the regulators will have a significant impact on the operations – and profitability – of those businesses affected by the legislation, including many businesses well beyond the financial services community.
Timing is of the essence. There are deadlines for these implementing rulemakings.
We have organized the overview so that you can quickly locate areas of particular interest and understand the approaching deadlines.
Each section of this overview corresponds to one of the Act’s Titles, summarizing the Title in bullet form and setting out a clear chart outlining the required rulemakings, including pertinent deadlines.
