BuckleySandler Webinar: Automotive Add-On Products – The Regulatory Landscape and the Road Ahead

  • March 3, 2015
  • 2:00 PM EST - 3:15 PM EST

Within the last 18 months, automotive industry participants have increasingly come under scrutiny from government regulators, including the CFPB, the Department of Justice, and state Attorneys General. On a parallel track, there has been a multi-year focus on the marketing, sale, and servicing of add-on products that can be sold in connection with a financial transaction across a number of industries.

Of late, regulatory focus is moving toward the intersection between auto and add-on products. From extended warranties to GAP insurance, regulators are now focusing on the marketing, sale, and servicing of products that may be sold in connection with transactions involving automobiles. The first enforcement actions are emerging and these actions hold the potential to have implications for lenders, dealers, and product manufactures alike.
 
Please join us for a panel discussion among Jonice Gray Tucker, John Redding, and Kris Knabe, who regularly advise clients on auto finance matters.

They will be joined by Doug Gansler, the former Attorney General of Maryland and now partner with BuckleySandler, who will provide his own unique insights as a former regulator. Panelists will discuss:

  • CFPB, FTC, and AG Jurisdiction and Powers
  • Recent Enforcement Actions Involving Add-On Products
  • Implications for Automotive Industry Participants
  • Tips for Managing Risk in View of Increasing Scrutiny

Who Should Attend: This webinar will be of particular interest to in-house legal, compliance, and risk management personnel in the automotive industry.
