Given today’s regulatory environment, meeting consumer protection-related obligations has never been more crucial.  The FTC, CFPB, and state Attorneys General, have made cracking down on advertising violations a priority. Any advertiser seeks to maximize the impact of its message, but there are limits, and consumer protection agencies are actively defining and enforcing these limits.  Current investigations are zeroing in on the advertising practices of lead generators and their customers, and enforcement actions have shown how costly violations can be.  This session will be a lively point / counterpoint with a Q & A.

Key Takeaways:

  • Hear the latest enforcement priorities directly from a lead FTC enforcer and attorneys in the trenches.
  • Understand how to avoid the dangers of telemarketing to leads generated online, including what it means to have an established business relationship (under the TSR) and prior express written consent (under the TCPA).
  • Identify best practices to help avoid compliance nightmares and government scrutiny.
  • Discover strategies and tactics to use when faced with responding to a government investigation.
