Share Article

Equipment Leasing Showcase scheduled August 24-25 from the Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead in Atlanta, GA.

The Lessors Network is pleased to announce Albert F. Tellechea, shareholder of Akerman Senterfitt, will speak to executive attendees of the Lessors Network Annual Showcase on August 24-25 from the Ritz-Carlton, Buckhead hotel in Atlanta, GA.

Albert F. Tellechea, representing Popular Leasing U.S.A., Inc., a subsidiary of Banco Popular North America, was successful in having a Florida circuit judge reject a lawsuit the state filed accusing 12 national finance companies of violating the Florida Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act. The ruling was significant as attorneys general in other states had been monitoring the outcome of the Florida case.

John Semon, CEO of the Lessors Network, commented, “An exclusive group of senior equipment leasing executives attending this event will be very interested in hearing Tellechea’s account of this important victory for leasing companies in Florida.”

Tellechea will participate in a roundtable forum addressing relevant facts about the Norvergence debacle, the history and role of critical legal principles embodied in traditional lease procedures and the prospect of legislative oversight of the equipment leasing industry.
