Maurice Wutscher Attorneys Author Article on State Debt Collection Rulemaking

Feb. 21, 2018 — Maurice Wutscher’s Donald Maurice, Eric Rosenkoetter and Brent Yarborough have written an article discussing the regulation of debt collection activity at the state level for the Feb. 20 issue of Consumer Financial Services Law Report.

In “States Advance Debt Collection Regulation as CFPB Rule Stalls,” the authors write that while rulemaking at the federal level remains uncertain, states are advancing their rulemaking efforts.

“Numerous states have undertaken or soon will create extraordinary legislative and regulatory measures that are changing the landscape of debt collection regulation,” they write.

Mr. Maurice, Mr. Rosenkoetter and Mr. Yarborough focus their practices in the areas of appellate, commercial, and consumer credit litigation, and regulatory compliance. They regularly represent consumer and commercial financial services companies, including financial asset buyers and sellers, depository institutions, third-party debt collectors, and other financial services providers and have significant experience working with federal and state legislators and regulators.
