Tom Hudson publishes article on leasing regulations in Auto Dealer Today

In the fourth quarter issue of Auto Dealer Today, Tom Hudson reminds dealers that although leasing is frequently touted as subject to less government regulation than dealer financing that employs retail installment sale contracts, a recent Florida case illustrates that leasing is also subject to federal and state regulation. Dealership finance departments should be familiar with the requirements of the federal Consumer Leasing Act (CLA) and Regulation M.

Tom was a founding partner of Hudson Cook and has practiced consumer financial services law since 1973. He has focused his practice on matters relating to vehicle financing and leasing. Tom is now Of Counsel to Hudson Cook, CEO of, LLC, and the Senior Editor of CARLAW┬ę, a monthly subscription service that reports legal developments in the auto finance and lease business.
