The third location of PLI’s 24th Annual Consumer Financial Services Institute will take place in PLI’s San Francisco Conference facility and via concurrent live Webcast on December 9-10, 2019 in San Francisco (and by live webcast).  PLI has extended a 25 percent discount to clients and friends of Ballard Spahr who register through the link below.  I am co-chairing the event, as I have for the past 23 years.  Chris Willis, Practice Leader of Ballard Spahr’s Consumer Financial Services Litigation Group, will participate as a panel member in two panel discussions in the afternoon session of the first day.

The morning session on the first day will feature a panel discussion titled “Federal Regulators Speak,” that will be divided into two segments and focus on federal regulatory, enforcement, and supervisory developments.  I will co-moderate a discussion among CFPB, FTC and FDIC representatives.

One of the two afternoon panels in which Chris will participate as a panel member is titled “Fair Credit Reporting Act/Debt Collection Issues” and will include a discussion of the CFPB’s debt collection rulemaking, FCRA litigation trends, and state activity.  The other panel, which I will moderate, is titled “The Rapidly Evolving Landscape for FinTech” and will examine the intersection between new technologies and products and existing regulatory frameworks, such as the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Blockchain (including virtual currency).

The Institute will also focus on a variety of other cutting-edge issues and developments, including:

  • State regulatory and enforcement developments
  • Privacy and data security issues
  • TCPA developments
  • Class action and litigation developments
  • Consumer advocates’/plaintiff lawyers’ perspectives on current regulatory and litigation issues

In addition, attendees can receive up to one full hour of Ethics credit exploring ethical issues unique to the consumer space.
