Litigation in the mortgage industry has shown a slight decline in recent months, but there are signs that it could remain above historic levels as foreclosure, investor, and regulatory lawsuits persist, according to Mortgage Daily's Fourth Quarter 2012 Litigation Index.

A Ballard Spahr white paper analyzing the Litigation Index found that despite the recent declines, the magnitude of mortgage litigation is still higher than in any period since 2007. And recent regulatory developments may serve to encourage new litigation when they take effect next year.

In this webinar, we will discuss the numbers and the implications for future mortgage-related litigation.

Topics

• Fourth-quarter litigation numbers compared with earlier periods
• Why declines in foreclosure activity and mortgage delinquencies haven't resulted in less foreclosure-related litigation
• How regulatory changes could drive litigation numbers even higher
• Other factors, such as evolving theories of liability for mortgage servicers, that are contributing to this trend
