Please join K&L Gates for our 2021 Consumer Financial Services Symposium – Virtual Edition. This symposium will consist of a series of webinars over the course of several weeks. Below is a description of our first webinar that will focus on FinTech, and we invite you to register. Separate blog posts and invitations for the other webinars in this series will be forthcoming.

Our first webinar will address recent developments in FinTech compliance and litigation, covering issues ranging from machine learning in credit underwriting and attendant fairness questions to the use of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) with respect to consumer protection law. We will also address developments that the financial services industry is likely to see under the Biden administration, including the use of technology in extending credit and making other credit-related decisions. Attendees will have an opportunity to submit questions during this webinar.
