On July 16-18, the American Conference Institute will hold its 30th National Conference on Consumer Finance Class Actions and Government Enforcement. David Bizar, partner and co-chair of Seyfarth’s Consumer Financial Services Litigation Practice, will be presenting “Understanding the Role of the CFPB and the Death of Forced Arbitration.” The panel discussion will evaluate the lessons learned from recent CFPB enforcement actions.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Appraising the roll back of the rule that bans banks, credit issuers and other financial institutions from using forced arbitration clauses in account contracts
  • Reviewing the new rule which restricts a lender’s ability to profit from high-interest, short-term loans
  • Comparing the outcomes of cases resolved by arbitrators v. lawsuits seeking class-action status
  • Predicting the regulatory efforts under Mulvaney and Trump and the potential impact on the consumer financial services industry

The conference will provide expert strategies for in-house outside counsel on navigating class actions, litigation, and government enforcement actions and examinations in the consumer finance industry.
