We are pleased to announce that Troutman Sanders partner John Lynch will be a featured speaker at the American Conference Institute’s 26th National Conference on Consumer Finance Class Actions & Litigation on July 29, 2016 at the Omni Chicago Hotel.

John will participate in a panel entitled, “The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA): Litigation and Settlement Trends, New Plaintiff Theories, Emerging Defense Strategies, Class Action Certification Issues, and Staying Ahead of the Curve in the Face of Complex and Unclear Rules.” The panelists will discuss emerging trends and developments in TCPA litigation, settlement trends, compliance concerns, enforcement trends, and recent FCC guidance, evolving issues relating to consent and revocation of consent under the TCPA, certification issues relating the TCPA class actions, and the latest definition of automated telephone dialing system (ATDS). Additionally, the speakers will offer defense strategies for combating the new wave of TCPA claims and class actions, for overcoming TCPA challenges and limiting TCPA exposure in the face of complex and unclear rules, and address how technology can be used to minimize exposure in TCPA claims, as well as practical guidance for what lies ahead.
