Law Firm & Service Provider Readiness – Planning for the Unknown
Thursday, December 17, 2020
12-1:15 Central Time (10-11:15 Pacific, 11-12:15 Mountain, 1-2:15 Eastern)
 
Join our panel of attorneys, servicers and service providers to explore the unknowns that surround our expectations of returning default volumes in 2021.  How do law firms prepare for the coming default work when there are so many variables and unknowns in play with the current moratoriums?  What if moratoriums continue past 2020, will there be file maintenance fees or other compensation available to law firms for the work they are providing with files that are on hold?  What does that mean for the financial stability of law firms if default revenues remain non-existent?  How does a law firm ramp-up and have adequate staffing without knowing what the default volumes will be, and when they will resume?  What can servicers provide to the law firms to help them be prepared?  We plan to address these and many other questions that are on the minds of all industry stakeholders as we conclude the year and make predictions for what is to come for us in 2021.
