Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) October 22, 2013
To help lenders prepare for this fast approaching deadline, Offit Kurman and The Collingwood Group are proud to offer a Special Briefing, Compliance Countdown: 60 Days Left to Prepare. The briefing will be held on Thursday, November 12th, 1 – 5 p.m , at the Wyndham Hotel In Philadelphia, PA. This half-day session will cover comprehensively and in –depth the rules and strategies needed to be compliant and competitive in this highly regulated environment. Delivered by attorneys and business strategists who are on the front lines, the focus is on practical, real world best practices that will enable businesses to be compliant and thrive.
Said attorney Ari Karen, a nationally recognized authority on Compensation Compliance in the mortgage banking industry and lead presenter of this Special Briefing:
“The CFPB and state regulators have announced their intention to coordinate enforcement of new and difficult to understand laws and regulations. Congress has passed new laws creating unprecedented liabilities for lenders. The threat of horizontal audits and third party liability has created a self-policing industry where regulatory and litigation risks can preclude continued business relationships. Fortunately, the majority of risks for lenders can be avoided by proper and efficient compliance management. Further, lenders can remain highly competitive if they fully understand the rules and on what regulators focus. This Special Briefing will provide invaluable practical advice and insight as to how lenders can be compliant and thrive in the current environment from advisers who on the front lines of these matters.”
