Speakers: Julia B. Strickland

Stroock and the Practising Law Institute are pleased to present a panel of officials from five important States Attorneys’ General Offices—California, Illinois, Massachusetts, New York and Washington—for a discussion of the broad range of consumer protection issues they currently are addressing and that they anticipate arising over the coming months and years in the aftermath of the COVID-19 and resultant financial crises. Organized and chaired by our partner Julia Strickland in collaboration with PLI, the program will provide a rare opportunity to hear directly from individuals at the forefront of state regulation and enforcement.

This program is of keen interest to all businesses, with a particular emphasis on financial services companies. From enacting emergency regulations to safeguarding individuals’ economic security, to stopping bad actors taking advantage of the crisis and its anticipated aftermath, to defending challenges to emergency orders issued by States, the Attorneys General engage across the board using their regulatory and enforcement powers. This program will address specific orders and actions taken by the Attorneys General Offices of five critical States as well as their focus going forward.

Topics include:

  • Emergency debt collection regulations
  • Foreclosure and eviction moratoriums
  • Potential unfair or deceptive financial practices
  • Price gouging and other consumer scams
  • Challenges to States’ emergency measures
  • What happens next
