Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act

Designed to promote financial stability, the DFA (or Dodd-Frank) is a very broad and complex statute that ushered in a sweeping new financial services regime, in response to the financial crisis of 2008.

The DFA spans more than 2,300 pages, and it required government agencies to implement approximately 300 regulations. This brought about sweeping change to financial services operations. In 2010, ABA compiled a summary and analysis of the Act to help ABA members understand and prepare for the anticipated regulatory changes.  ABA also commented on many of the proposed regulations resulting from this legislation.
