The Growing Need for Monitoring Support

Agencies such as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), Department of Justice (DOJ), Office of the Inspector General (OIG), and various state attorneys general frequently use independent monitoring agreements to verify compliance and remediation efforts.

Crowe was hired by the Office of Mortgage Settlement Oversight to monitor two of the nation’s largest banks.
