PPP Lending: Preparing for and Defending Against the New Wave of Class Actions

PPP Lending: Preparing for and Defending Against the New Wave of Class Actions. 

Only weeks into the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), numerous class actions already are being filed against participating lenders and more are expected. In this webinar, Manatt Financial Services litigators will discuss these cases and how PPP lenders can mitigate the risks they pose. Topics include:

  • Recently filed cases alleging that lenders improperly favored some applicants over others
  • Other theories class action plaintiffs are likely to pursue against PPP lenders, including whistleblower claims under the False Claims Act
  • Compliance measures lenders can use to mitigate against class action risk
  • Strategies for defending against PPP-related claims
