The Week Ahead: Bringing Together Law Firms and Mortgage Servicers

The Five Star Institute will host various default servicing industry experts at the 2019 Legal League 100 Spring Servicer Summit, to be held May 6-7 at the Adolphus Hotel in Dallas, Texas. The Spring Servicer Summit will bring together representation from mortgage servicers, financial services law firms, and federal government agencies to discuss best practices and policies impacting professional legal services supporting the mortgage industry.

The Spring Summit will begin with an opening address from Legal League 100 Chairman Roy Diaz, after which the day's educational sessions will begin. Topics to be discussed include:

  • Critical Developments in Default Litigation
    Dive into the latest litigation developments, including the most recent FDCPA litigation, impacting the default industry over the last year. The industry's top financial services attorneys and executives will explore the implications of these cases.
  • Unrecorded Loan Modifications and Title Issues in Default Servicing
    This panel will discuss the implications of unrecorded loan modifications and various title issues that impact bankruptcy, foreclosure, and REO.
  • Building Better Partnerships: Collaborating to Improve Communication
