Debt settlement companies and law firms increasingly are presenting challenges for lenders, servicers, and debt collectors, particularly when they persuade consumer and small business borrowers to stop making payments on accounts.

In this webinar, Ballard Spahr lawyers will address:

  • State and federal regulatory interest in unlawful or deceptive practices by debt settlement companies and law firms vis-a-vis consumers

  • Best practices for responding to cease-and-desist letters

  • Strategic options available to creditors, including litigation

  • Whether and how to communicate with represented borrowers

  • Antitrust implications
