May 3, 2016 — Several Maurice Wutscher attorneys will speak on recent developments in consumer financial services law at NARCA’s Spring Conference in Chicago this week.
Donald Maurice and Eric Rosenkoetter will be panel speakers for “Auto Deficiency, Replevin, Medical, and Foreclosure FDCPA Issues You Won’t See With Credit Cards.” The presentation will take a closer look at FDCPA claims arising from practices unique in the servicing and collection of mortgage and student loans, the collection of government debt, motor vehicle loans and medical debt. Panelists will discuss current case law and best practices to reduce liability when engaged in representing clients in these specialized areas.
Thomas R. Dominczyk will discuss “Bankruptcy for Collection Attorneys.” Dominczyk will examine the impact of bankruptcy on outside collection efforts, claim filing and management, and potential FDCPA applicability for actions within bankruptcy.
In “Vicarious Liability: How to Protect Yourself in This New Era of Regulatory Supervision,” Keith Wier will discuss vicarious liability, the effect of Dodd-Frank, the role and attitude of the CFPB and how to respond in this new regulatory environment.
Finally, Brent Yarborough will moderate “Regulation of the Collection Industry: How Much is Too Much?” Representatives from the Cato Institute, the CFPB, the University of Virginia School of Law, the Office of the Illinois Attorney General, and the FTC will participate in this panel discussion.
