ACI’s 25th National Consumer Finance: Class Actions & Litigation

July 27, 2016 - July 29, 2016
Omni Chicago Hotel, 676 N Michigan Avenue, Chicago, Illinois


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 any time 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. Thomas Hefferon, chair of the firm's Consumer Financial Services Litigation Practice, is co-chair of the conference and speaking on “Fair Lending: Managing and Defending Against Claims of Discriminatory, Predatory, and Abusive Lending and Assessing the Status of ‘Disparate Impact’ in Lending Litigation and Enforcement.”
