Consumer Finance Class Actions & Litigation

Presented by American Conference Institute

Consumer financial services companies are facing unprecedented regulatory and enforcement scrutiny and mounting litigation, and there is no sign of change coming anytime soon. That is why it is essential that in-house an outside counsel have a mastery of new class action trends, emerging theories of liability, the latest enforcement actions and regulatory initiatives, and the most effective defense and settlement strategies.

It is with this in mind that American Conference Institute has developed its 25th National Conference on Consumer Finance Class Actions & Litigation, returning to Los Angeles in April 2016. We have assembled an unparalleled faulty of federal and state regulatory and enforcement officials, senior in-house counsel, renowned federal and state judges, and leading outside counsel who will provide you with expert advice, critical insights, and comprehensive updates on:

  • CFPB’s enforcement actions, investigation trends, reviewing its authority to implement a ban on arbitration clauses
  • Supreme Court’s review of Campbell-Ewald Co., Spokeo, Tyson and its impact in the industry
  • Consumer finance class action litigation: increasing reluctance of courts on approving class action settlements
  • Residential mortgage litigation trends, loan modification issues, duty of care owed by loan servicers to borrowers
  • TCPA litigation and settlement trends, emerging defense strategies, class action certification issues
  • Fair lending: managing and defending against claims of discriminatory, predatory, and abusive lending and the consequence of the Supreme Court’s decision affirming the use of ‘disparate impact’ theory in fair lending
  • FDCPA and the FCRA enforcement actions, violations, litigation trends, and background screening procedures and violations of the FCRA
