    While lawsuits brought pursuant to other consumer protection statutes have seen declines in recent years, there has been a steady increase of Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) litigation, with claims and defenses continuing to evolve and develop. Due to these evolving claims and defenses and the prevailing regulatory risks associated with the FCRA, as well as the significant recent Supreme Court decision in TransUnion LLC v. Ramirez, it becomes more crucial for companies and their counsel to be proactive in revisiting and updating their current FCRA compliance programs and staying abreast of litigation trends. Furthermore, being in the know of the latest FCRA regulatory trends and updates is essential in minimizing further legal risk issues. Structuring effective defense strategies for litigation readiness must also be prioritized.

    In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of key thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an in-depth discussion of FCRA litigation trends. Speakers will present crucial considerations as well as effective litigation strategies in bringing out the best in this type of lawsuit.

    Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:
    • Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) – A Legal Primer
    • Recent FCRA Regulatory and Litigation Trends and Developments
    • Common Legal Risks and Issues
    • Best Litigation Tips and Strategies
    • What Lies Ahead
