Many readers of our blog, Consumer Finance Monitor, have also been receiving emailed legal alerts from Ballard Spahr’s Consumer Financial Services Group about private litigation developments and decisions involving issues relevant to consumer finance.  In an effort to keep our clients even better informed, we have expanded Consumer Finance Monitor’s coverage beginning this week to include those developments and decisions.

This expansion means we will no longer be sending emailed legal alerts on a regular basis.  Reports on the day-to-day developments that collectively shape our industry will be available only on Consumer Finance Monitor.  Invitations to our webinars will continue to be sent by email.

If you are not already a Consumer Finance Monitor subscriber, we hope you will consider subscribing.  Subscribers receive emailed updates that contain links to each new blog post that we publish.

Our expanded blog will no longer tag blog posts under the general categories of  “CFPB Monitor,” “Federal CFS Monitor,” and “State CFS Monitor.”  Going forward, we will use the general categories of “Regulatory and Enforcement” and “Litigation and Decisions.”  We will continue to tag blog posts under specific sub-categories to enable our readers to more easily identify blog posts dealing with topics of interest to them.

In addition to our blog and webinars, we have a weekly podcast program focused on legal developments that are of importance to the consumer finance industry.  Our podcasts are available on Ballard Spahr’s website as well as Apple iTunes, Google Play, and Spotify.  A new podcast is released each Thursday.

You can subscribe to our blog, Consumer Finance Monitor, by entering your email address where indicated on the blog’s home page and clicking on the “subscribe” box.  To subscribe to our podcast, click here.

As always, we appreciate your support, and thank you for following Consumer Finance Monitor.
