In December 2019, the Pallone-Thune Telephone Robocall Abuse Criminal Enforcement and Deterrence Act (TRACED Act) was signed into law. Aimed at curtailing unlawful robocalls, the new law gives the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) a greater mandate to pursue scammers through increased monetary forfeitures and extended statute of limitations for intentional violations under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).

This development further intensifies the need for companies to keep and adopt thorough compliance procedures and policies.

In this LIVE Webcast, seasoned TCPA litigators Thomas A. Woods (Stoel Rives LLP) and Scott Goldsmith (Dorsey & Whitney LLP) will help businesses and practitioners understand the potential implication of the TRACED Act on TCPA compliance practices. Speakers will also offer the best compliance practices amidst increasing TCPA enforcement.

Key topics include:

  • The TRACED Act – Key Takeaways
  • Potential Changes to the TCPA on the Horizon
  • Litigation Strategies for a Changing and Disparate Regulatory Environment
  • Best Compliance Practices
