The Forum is a private gathering of up to 40 senior lawyers, in-house and private practice, who are well versed in defending financial institutions against consumer claims. Participants are personally selected from major financial institutions and law firms across the United States to meet and discuss the most pressing issues and questions they face today.
Using candid, peer-driven discussion, this annual Forum explores key trends and developments in the evolving enforcement environment and emerging litigation risks.
