Among the many services our group provides are:

  • Defense of individual and class action lawsuits arising from claims under the FCRA, FDCPA, TCPA, ECOA, EFTA and state consumer statutes;   
  • Representation in administrative investigations, as well as compliance and enforcement matters involving state agencies and other regulatory authorities;
  • Compliance counsel and support services to minimize lawsuits and to mitigate loss. This includes advising clients on managing compliance under the CFPB.

 

We offer cost-effective, intelligent and pragmatic representation of our clients.   While we aggressively defend claims in litigation, we understand that the most critical component of litigation is an open line of communication with our clients.  We never lose sight of our client's goals and strive to meet your expectations with focused attention arising from our extensive knowledge of the law.  Our primary focus is to empower you to make informed decisions about your exposures and to develop an appropriate defense strategy.  

Our attorneys maintain active memberships in industry-leading organizations and keep abreast of the ever-changing regulatory environment impacting our clients. Because federal and state consumer laws are ever-evolving, you can feel confident that Marshall Dennehey's Consumer Financial Services Litigation & Compliance Practice Group is on the cutting edge of emerging trends in case law, litigation and defense.
