Andrew Pincus will be participating in PLI’s 20th Annual Consumer Financial Services Institute on April 7-8, 2015 in New York. His panel will address:

• Trends in FCRA case filings, including credit reports and employment background checks
• How the definition of "consumer report" applies to reports not usually thought subject to FCRA
• Issues of most interest to plaintiffs' lawyers and federal and state regulators
• Analysis of case law developments in FCRA cases and Key Verdicts and Settlements

Why You Should Attend

2015 will mark the 20th year of this marquee PLI program. The 2015 Institute will focus on the most current regulatory, enforcement and litigation updates touching on a wide range of consumer financial services, including mortgages, auto finance, credit, debit and prepaid cards, deposit accounts, emerging payment systems, including mobile pay-services and e-wallets, as well as other products and services that are reviving enduring legal concerns or raising new ones for fresh examination.

With the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) entering its fourth year since formation, the consumer financial services industry is struggling to keep pace with the CFPB’s aggressive regulatory and enforcement initiatives. Simultaneously, additional federal and state regulators and attorneys general are ramping up their activity, creating for a multi-faceted spectrum of regulation that consumer financial companies must prepare for. At the same time, the volume of private litigation, including class actions, remains high – a combination of factors that drive measurable change in how attorneys represent clients on all sides of the industry. Join us and our esteemed faculty for an insightful review of this dynamic area of legal practice.
