Debt sellers and buyers are rethinking industry norms, as well as their roles and potential responsibilities in such transactions, following recent statements and guidance from state and federal regulators. As this movement evolves, and with new regulation on the horizon, these players must confront shifting expectations and potentially expanded liabilities of this emerging new order.

This webinar will focus on the following topics to help debt sellers and buyers better understand the implications of the regulators’ pronouncements, and how to prepare for new rulemaking in this area.  


  • Recent statements, guidance, and findings of the OCC, CFPB, and FTC, and the implications
  • Initiatives in New York, California, and other states
  • Potential liability for the regulatory actions/omissions of buyers and service providers
  • Potential avenues for regulatory enforcement activity
  • How companies can prepare themselves for additional regulation
