Jessica Klander Reelected to Consumer Relations Consortium Board


Bassford Remele Consumer Finance Practice Group Co-Chair Jessica Klander has been reelected to the Consumer Relations Consortium (CRC) Legal Advisory Board (LAB). The LAB is an exclusive membership group of outside counsel with superior knowledge and experience in the accounts receivable industry who have each pledged their time and resources to support the mission of the CRC. The LAB allows a limited number of law firms and is comprised of fourteen total attorneys. Throughout the year, the LAB serves as a legal resource to the CRC membership and assists in fulfilling the mission of promoting forward-thinking approaches to the issues raised by regulatory policy and technology innovation in the accounts receivable industry.

Jessica defends businesses and professionals against liability and malpractice claims in the consumer law defense, professional liability, and general liability arenas. Also experienced in complex litigation, employment law, non-compete disputes, and class action lawsuits, she regularly represents clients in both state and federal courts across the United States. She defends creditors and credit professionals against federal consumer statute and liability claims, performs compliance audits and trainings, and consults with creditors and credit professionals on commonsense compliance with the FDCPA, FCRA, TCPA, TILA, and applicable state laws. As a member of the LAB, Jessica co-authored the CRC's Amicus Brief in the Hunstein matter in 2021.

As a member of the 2023 LAB Jessica co-authored comments to the CFPB about its personal financial data rights proposal, comments to the California Department of Financial Protection and Innovation (DFPI) regarding proposed updates to its complaints and inquiries regulation, comments to the CFPB regarding its policy statement on abusive acts and practices, and comments to the New York City Department of Consumer and Worker Protection regarding its proposed update to debt collection rules. The California DFPI adopted the language suggested by Jessica and her co-author in their comment.
