PRACTICAL

Businesses that sell consumer financial products and services have come under increased scrutiny by state and federal regulators as well as plaintiff’s class action attorneys.  Financial service businesses, large and small, must now implement compliance management systems that demonstrate that they comply with the laws and regulations that govern them. 

 

Larger companies are investing millions of dollars to meet these new compliance requirements, hiring senior compliance officers and large compliance staffs.  

 

But small and medium-sized businesses must also employ compliance management systems that are appropriate to their size and market share. 

 

Thurman Legal focuses on providing timely compliance guidance to small and mid-sized businesses that don’t have the resources to install expensive compliance programs.

Most importantly, we work with our clients to design the litigation and compliance solutions you need that work within your budget.

 

We can:

 

  • Prepare a “legal check-up” or compliance audits to help you determine how you’re doing and what you need to be doing.

  • Review and revise marketing pieces, draft policies and procedures, affiliate agreements, vendor and customer agreements.

  • Add arbitration clauses and class action waivers to agreements.
