(October 9, 2014) – Buckley Sandler LLP, a leading financial services and criminal and civil enforcement defense law firm, is pleased to announce the availability of “The New CFPB Mortgage Origination Rules Deskbook.” Published in partnership with the American Bankers Association, the CFPB Deskbook is the definitive guide for bank and nonbank mortgage originators navigating the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB) new mortgage origination rules.
