Energy & Environment

The Litigation Center supports businesses and market-based innovation as integral to confronting today’s environmental challenges.  The Litigation Center represents the Chamber as party or amicus in a wide range of cases raising energy, environmental, and natural-resources issues.  In both federal and state courts, the Litigation Center participates in cases where regulators, advocacy groups, municipalities, and plaintiffs’ lawyers seek to advance improper interpretations of statutes and regulations, and of common-law theories and doctrines that jeopardize the operations of responsible businesses and unreasonably impair beneficial economic activity.  In recent years, we have been especially active in public nuisance and climate tort cases.
