ACI's 12th National Forum on

Consumer Finance Class Actions & Litigation

Thursday, October 27 to Friday, October 28, 2011
Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress, Orlando, FL

As ground-breaking regulation comes into play and changes the consumer finance industry, leaders in the field will convene to share insight that will prepare you to overcome these new obstacles.

Consumer finance related litigation continues to capture the headlines and fill federal and state courts’ dockets. On the heels of the economic crisis, state attorneys general and regulatory bodies, including the newly formed Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, are stepping up their federal regulatory initiatives. In this era of unprecedented scrutiny and liability, the explosion of consumer finance claims persist and the cost of damages continue to increase. The cost of compliance failures under the many laws that govern collection, foreclosure and lending disclosure can be astronomical. In this minefield of hot-button issues, defense lawyers and in-house counsel must know how to mount a rigorous defense against aggressive plaintiff s’ lawyers who are adept at advancing novel and innovative theories of liability.

There has never been a more important time for defense attorneys, in-house counsel and service providers to gain insights on plaintiff s’ approaches and the best defense arguments so they can pro-actively work to reduce and manage consumer claims.
