Consumer Financial Services
The crazy quilt of laws and regulations protecting the rights of consumers in financial transactions has become more complex than ever. The subprime crisis has spurred substantial class action and other litigation, as well as significant government enforcement activity. In addition, new financial services and the ongoing technological revolution have created a host of new questions. This comprehensive guide is designed to help you identify and deal with the full range of legal problems in this growing area.
Consumer Financial Services presents detailed analysis of every aspect of this important subject, including the impact of more than fifteen federal statutes—ranging from the Civil Rights Act of 1866 to the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act—on the banking, insurance and real estate industries. The book not only explains the substance of the legislative requirements, but also examines enforcement activities, litigation issues and compliance considerations. It is an invaluable resource for anyone who advises or litigates on behalf of consumer financial services industry clients.
