Consumer financial services companies are facing unprecedented regulatory and enforcement scrutiny, mounting litigation, and costly class actions, and there is no sign of change coming anytime soon. That is why it is essential that in-house and outside counsel have a mastery of new class action litigation and settlement trends, emerging theories of liability, the latest enforcement actions and regulatory initiatives, and the most effective defense and settlement strategies. This session will include:
- Proposed rule on arbitration—comment period closed, final rule
- Application of the rule on arbitration and how it will require a transition
- Reactions to the rule—will it do more harm than good?
- CFPB’s rulemaking agenda—what else is on the horizon?
- Pending rulemaking regarding debt collection proposal regarding antecedent debt
- Pending rulemaking regarding payday lending
- Other areas the CFPB has turned their rulemaking attention to?
