Recent litigation is changing the analysis of whether an entity is acting as a debt collector under the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. Orrick attorney Jon Langlois focused on the latest developments in federal case law that shed new light on the threshold question of who is subject to the obligations and potential penalties of the FDCPA. They also discussed aspects of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's proposed implementing rule, and what businesses should consider when engaging in debt collection-related activities.
