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. It is with this in mind that American Conference Institute has developed its 23rd National Conference on Consumer Finance Class Actions & Litigation. Thomas Hefferon will serve as conference co-chair and speak on the panel "Consumer Finance Class Action Litigation and Settlement Trends and New and Emerging Procedural Considerations: Certification and Other Procedural Developments, Offers of Judgment/Full Relief, New Cases, Emerging Theories of Liability, and Recent Developments in Settlement Strategies."
