The Telephone Consumer Protection Act or TCPA, together with the FCC’s draconian regulations impose restrictions on your phone and text marketing communications that create a large opening for bad actors. We frequently find business who believe they are in compliance or that their marketing services providers are compliant, only to discover they are not. Usually this discovery takes place when it is too late. As one of the very few law firms that has been integrally involved in commenting to the FCC on regulations changes and keeping up with not only the FCC’s rules, but court interpretations of these rules, DBL’s TCPA can help limit the massive exposure business face in their communications practice.
The very first thing every business should do is look closely at their marketing agreements with third party providers. Usually any TCPA liability in class action case runs against the company that benefits from the marketing and both by contract and statute the third-party service providers are in the clear. This results in an ecosystem where many companies assume their service providers are compliant and yet these same providers have no legal incentive to remain so as the burden rests on the company.
Rather than risk potentially millions in TCPA liability we can help you sort through the due diligence that come from also a decade of TCPA experience representing companies and service providers. Whether it is TCPA class litigation, the one-off nuisance plaintiff or contract disputes with providers, we can handle disputes in any forum.
