David Bizar Presenting at American Conference Institute’s 13th National Forum on Residential Mortgage Litigation & Regulatory Enforcement


Los Angeles, CA
The Westin Bonaventure Hotel & Suites
Thursday, January 16 to Friday, January 17, 2014

On January 17, Litigation Partner David Bizar will co-present a session on "Loan Servicing: Complying with New and Emerging Regulations, Employing Best Practices, Defending Against Borrower Claims, and Implementing Effective Loss Mitigation Strategies." The session is sponsored by the American Conference Institute’s 13th National Forum on Residential Mortgage Litigation & Regulatory Enforcement .

This event is perfectly timed for you to benchmark your current litigation strategies given the CFPB’s January 2014 implementation dates. The coming year is going to bring a wave of new litigation, comprehensive regulations, and enhanced enforcement efforts. In addition, the industry continues to be faced with scrutiny over implementation of the AG settlement, allegations of foreclosure documentation errors and so called “robo-signing,” and an extremely active class action litigation landscape including Fair Lending, Forced Place Insurance and HAMP claims.

Come join David Bizar in Los Angeles for a revamped program that will provide attendees with up to the minute insights and strategies that are necessary to defend against these new claims and adapt to the evolving regulatory landscape.  Faculty of regulatory and enforcement officials, judges, expert in house counsel, and leading outside counsel will provide you with strategic advice, critical insights, and comprehensive updates for:

  • The CFPB’s regulatory and enforcement agenda: post-implementation overview and what to expect going forward
  • Federal and state regulatory and enforcement insights in a multi-agency environment
  • Key state nuances and developments in hotbed jurisdictions, including California
  • The borrower’s perspective: insights from the plaintiffs’ bar
  • Fair lending: managing and defending against claims of predatory and discriminatory lending and assessing the status of ‘disparate impact’ in lending litigation and enforcement
  • Forced place insurance, HAMP and impound accounts litigation: ongoing trends in residential mortgage class actions
  • Pivotal residential mortgage issues currently in play and coming down the pike from the U.S. Supreme Court
  • Foreclosure litigation: standing and claims relating to MERS, contested foreclosures, and responding to borrower counterclaims & stall tactics
  • Loan servicing: complying with new and emerging regulations, employing best practices, defending against borrower claims, and implementing effective loss mitigation strategies
  • Third-party vendor management in the mortgage servicing context
