Representing attorneys and collection companies against both individual and class action claims.
LBC&C represents attorneys and collection companies against both individual and class action claims filed under numerous federal and state consumer protection statutes including the Fair Debt Collection Practiced Act (“FDCPA”), the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Telephone Consumer Protection Act and New York General Business Law Section 349.
When confronted with these lawsuits, our clients are faced with a great deal of potential exposure, especially when the plaintiff has commenced a class action lawsuit and/or is alleging violations of a fee-shifting statute like the FDCPA. Therefore, the firm seeks to and has had success in resolving these matters in an expeditious and cost-efficient manner.
In addition, the firm also represents attorneys and collection companies on a consultation basis, wherein we provide our clients with guidance and advice to assist them in avoiding violations of the foregoing statutes. The scope of this representation includes researching various issues, and updating our clients with respect to the most recent relevant case law, the review of documents, and assistance in the preparation of policies and procedures, which help our clients avoid potential liability.
