I recently attended the Fall Conference of the National Association of Dealer Counsel in Chicago. The programs were timely, interesting and informative. We’ll provide greater depth in future posts, but there were interesting programs about the effect on dealerships of the VW emissions scandal, dealership compliance with data protection laws, direct and indirect regulation of financing by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), and the use of personal goodwill to reduce taxes in a dealership buy-sell. Lots of good stuff.
