Class action ﬁlings under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) continued to be one of the most filed lawsuits in the United States in fiscal year 2016. However, due to the big number of suits filed, several cases were left unsettled, and companies that do business through phone and text remain affected. Fiscal year 2017 promises yet another action-packed landscape for the TCPA. The unsettled lawsuits last year are expected to be ruled upon this year and people are anticipating significant impacts of the new administration to these rulings.
The panel of key thought leaders and practitioners brought together by The Knowledge Group will offer a discussion of the fundamentals as well as updates regarding the latest and significant issues surrounding Telephone Consumer Protection Act. This live webcast aims to help the audience avoid common pitfalls and risk issues when it comes to TCPA compliance. Speakers will also offer significant outlook of the 2017 TCPA landscape and a comprehensive analysis of the rulings on cases brought under the act.
Key issues that will be covered in this course are:
· 2016 TCPA Highlights
· Up-to-the-minute TCPA Updates
· TCPA in the 2017 Landscape
· Top TCPA Class Action Lawsuits to Look for
· New Administration's Impact on TCPA
