The TCPA and the FCC’s regulations impose byzantine restrictions on your communications. Many businesses simply assume that they or their vendors are complying with those restrictions without accounting for changes in the law, technology, or both. But missteps in this minefield can be costly; encouraged by uncapped statutory damages and enabled by ambiguous regulations, plaintiffs are targeting any arguable infraction in the hopes of extorting settlements by threatening theoretical exposures in the millions, if not billions, of dollars. Communications have been hindered, businesses have been bankrupted, and consumers have been burdened with underwriting this cottage industry through higher prices for goods and services.
Clients regularly call upon us to review compliance with the statute, revise contracts with vendors and customers, advocate positions with regulators, and defend businesses in individual and putative class actions in courts across the country. With lawyers across the country with extensive TCPA experience, we can assemble an interdisciplinary team to handle virtually any matter.
Our litigators are defending some of the country’s largest companies in some of the country’s largest TCPA class actions. We are familiar with and sensitive to the unique concerns of businesses faced with consumer class action litigation. We monitor developments at the FCC and in the courts and use our insight to devise creative defenses and map out multiple paths to victory. And when the facts counsel in favor of it, we can protect our clients’ businesses and budgets by negotiating a settlement at the optimal time on optimal terms.
Our compliance counselors are government affairs attorneys who have deep experience dealing with the FCC and designing programs that are both compliant and practical. We can see the big picture and are sensitive to the significant costs and concerns associated with implementing large-scale compliance efforts. We offer the full range of compliance counseling:
- Monitoring the regulatory landscape
- Reviewing compliance with the statute
- Revising contracts with consumers and vendors
- Suggesting best practices in light of enforcement trends
- Developing practical solutions for operational problems
- Advocating that agencies modify their regulations and interpretations of statutes
Our TCPA team regularly presents webinars and CLE programs in partnership with a variety of organizations (e.g., the ACC, PBI, PACE and Lawline) and publishes articles with or field questions from leading media outlets (e.g., Law360, Practical Law, and BNA/Bloomberg). Our blog is the defense bar’s preeminent public resource analyzing TCPA litigation and regulation. For important information and insight about the TCPA, follow our team at www.tcpablog.com.
