Consumer Financial Services

Six Things to Know Before Buying a Physician Practice service promo

In this economy, almost every industry participates to some extent in collecting, sharing and using consumer financial and personal data. If your business deals specifically with consumer information, you know how difficult it can be to navigate the legal and regulatory waters of consumer financial protection laws. Since Congress created the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) in 2010, those laws and regulations have only become more complex and the chances of litigation related to consumer information have only increased.

Our Consumer Financial Services Practice Group assists clients nationwide with maintenance of robust Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) compliance programs, helps them work constructively with federal regulatory agencies, guides them through investigations and examinations conducted by the CFPB and Federal Trade Commission, and defends them in high-stakes class action litigation when disputes arise.
