Don’t Be a Legal Target — Advice From Two Payments Attorneys

October 21, 2019

The increase in cyberattacks and other fraud losses has resulted in many financial institutions becoming the targets of lawsuits by plaintiffs seeking ways to recover stolen funds.

Join payments industry attorneys Paul Carrubba and Scott Jones at the EPCOR Fall Payments Conference, October 21–23 in Overland Park, Kansas. The duo will share best practices on how to avoid being a target by making sure operational and security procedures fit the criteria of “commercially reasonable” from the court’s perspective. Learn how financial institutions can increase the potential for success in the event they are sued.

Paul and Scott will examine lawsuits brought against financial institutions by consumers under Regulation E, by businesses that were the victims of account takeovers and by customers and non-customers based on check fraud. They will also review provisions of Regulation E, UCC Article 4A and UCC Articles 3 and 4 that apply to these situations.
