We discuss how lead generation works, the roles of the various players in the lead generation marketplace, the key regulatory risks arising under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, Telephone Consumer Protection Act, and Telemarketing Sales Rule, FTC enforcement cases, and CFPB supervisory concerns. We also discuss the impact of the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act’s referral fee prohibition and fair lending/fair housing laws on lead generation involving mortgage-related services and state licensing issues triggered by lead generation.

Alan Kaplinsky, Ballard Spahr Senior Counsel, hosts the conversation joined by Matthew Morr, Richard Andreano, and John Socknat, partners in the firm’s Consumer Financial Services Group.
