Avoiding and Surviving Federal and State Enforcement Actions and Private Lawsuits
From continued Federal Trade Commission enforcement actions, and aggressive state regulators, attorneys general and plaintiffs' lawyers using every law at their disposal, including RICO, telemarketing laws, credit repair laws, money transmission statutes, debt adjusting laws, and more, the world for debt settlement companies is changing every day. Debt settlement companies have been attacked by the FTC and in enforcement actions and class actions in California, Georgia, South Carolina, West Virginia, Texas, New Hampshire, and other states. This program will be understandable, practical and useful, and will address compliance and enforcement issues facing debt settlement companies, including topics such as advertising and marketing claim substantiation, telemarketing and lead generation, successful use of arbitration provisions, spotting and avoiding the unauthorized practice of law, managing BBB complaints, preparing and defending against class actions, and resolving state enforcement actions, among others. Two attorneys who live in the daily trenches of enforcement actions and lawsuits against debt settlement companies will share their experiences and answer your questions.
