The 2018 Auto Fraud Conference will take place April 26–28, 2018 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Why You Should Attend

With auto loan fraud hitting record highs in the past year, rebuilt wrecks originating from hurricane-stricken states likely surfacing in used car lots across the country, and potential violations arising from increasing online purchase of automobiles (potentially reaching 10% of all auto sales by 2019), consumer attorneys must be ready to handle a wide range of new and recurring auto fraud challenges in the coming years.

The 2018 Auto Fraud Conference will provide you with knowledge of how the industry works, how to spot and litigate financing and “metal” cases (such as prior wrecks), and how to settle cases and get paid for your efforts. Furthermore, we will explore ways to set up viable auto fraud practices and litigate cases in growth areas of auto fraud.  

What You Will Learn

  • Learn to spot and litigate the most common types of auto fraud and expand your practice with cutting-edge areas
  • Learn how to conduct discovery and get the documents you need
  • Determine how to set up your practice and choose the best venues to try your case
