American Conference Institute's 17th National Conference on

Consumer Finance Class Actions & Litigation

Wednesday, January 29 to Thursday, January 30, 2014
New York Marriott Downtown Hotel, New York, NY

Consumer financial services companies are facing unprecedented regulatory and enforcement scrutiny and mounting litigation, 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 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 17th National Conference on Consumer Finance Class Actions & Litigation. We have assembled an unparalleled faculty of federal and state regulatory and enforcement officials, senior in-house counsel, renowned federal and state judges, and leading outside counsel who will provide you with expert advice, critical insights, and comprehensive updates on:


  • The latest enforcement actions and initiatives from the CFPB and other federal and state agencies, and their impact on the consumer finance industry
  • Consumer finance class action litigation and settlement trends, as well as new and emerging procedural considerations: certification and other procedural developments in the wake of Wal-Mart v. Dukes and its progeny, offers of full relief, new cases, emerging theories of liability, and innovations in settlement strategies
  • Mortgage and foreclosure litigation and compliance issues: defending against TILA claims and defeating foreclosure defenses and borrower stall tactics, as well as ensuring compliance with the new mortgage servicing rules
  • New and emerging strategies for defending against claims, class actions, and government enforcement actions relating to TCPA, FDCPA, and FCRA
  • Managing and defending against class actions and claims arising from student loans, auto lending, credit, debit, and prepaid cards, and bank add-on services and products
  • Judicial perspectives on class certification, arbitration, settlement considerations, bankruptcy litigation, e-discovery, and more
  • Analyzing debt collection litigation trends and using that information to prevent future lawsuits
  • Fair lending: managing and defending against claims of discriminatory lending and assessing the status of ‘disparate impact’ in lending litigation and enforcement, including in the areas of student loans and auto financing
