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 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.
