The National Law Review names Womble Bond Dickinson’s Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) team a Go-To Thought leader for the group’s prolific coverage of new trends in FCRA class action litigation and regulatory changes. Womble’s attorney authors explain trends in FCRA rulings across the federal circuit courts and examine how government agencies including the CFPB’s (Consumer Financial Protection Bureau) and the FTC’s (Federal Trade Commission) provide guidance on FCRA enforcement. Topics range from CFPB Consent Orders, the FTC’s requests for commentary on proposed changes, the section of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES act) which amends the FCRA, and the thousands of cases filed annually against banks, credit reporting agencies, debt collectors, retailers, and other organizations.  Regular FCRA contributors from Womble Bond Dickinson include Nadia Adams, Nikku D. Khalifian,  Sarah Meyer,  Nicole Su, and Jason D. Wyman.
