A Unified Plan of Attack: In-House and Outside Counsel Teamwork is
Integral to Consumer Litigation Defense

Recorded: Jan. 13, 2015

Collection agencies and their in-house attorneys often turn to outside counsel for expert representation when consumer lawsuits are filed against them. While the common goal of victory is clear among both, the defense strategy and posture is often less obvious. A successful defense against consumer claims requires a symbiotic relationship between attorney stakeholders on both sides of the aisle who understand the respective challenges impacting the other.

Objectives:

  1. In-house counsel and outside counsel should analyze the definition of victory for a given case, by evaluating matters such as defense costs, the tendencies of opposing counsel, and reputational harm.
  2. Maintaining a tactical relationship outside the confines of a specific case is important, because a well-rounded and current understanding of an agency's policies and procedures can help both in-house and outside counsel predict and navigate through future claims.

Speakers:
Aryeh Derman, Esq., Attorney at Law, Harris & Harris, Ltd., Chicago, Ill.
Nabil G. Foster, Esq., Partner, Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP, Chicago, Ill.
