Webinar: The CFPB Proposed a Model Demand Letter - Why Should I Worry About Mine?

Briefing Call sponsored by:

    

Recorded May 7, 2020.

Watch the webinar here.

Nothing exposes a law firm to class-action litigation like a template letter mailed out thousands of times.  This webinar will take a deeper dive into trends involving the initial demand letter. 

Among other topics, the speakers will discuss:

  • Time-barred debt disclosures-whether to use them and issues with content

  • Issues involving language concerning whether disputes must be in writing

  • Whether to ask the consumer to give a reason for the dispute

  • Whether to mention that action "may" be taken

  • What action to take if the consumer contacts you before you send your initial demand letter

The presentation may help reduce exposure caused by your initial demand letter until the CFPB creates a safe-harbor letter-if it ever does.
