Financial Litigation

The Litigation Center, working closely in coordination with the Chamber’s Center for Capital Markets Competitiveness, continues to file regularly in key cases affecting the regulation of capital markets and financial institutions.  The Litigation Center has brought lawsuits challenging a variety of unlawful and burdensome regulations such as the SEC’s Conflict Minerals Rule and the Department of Labor’s so-called “Fiduciary Rule.”  With respect to amicus curiae litigation, the Litigation Center has filed amicus briefs in a host of important securities and corporate governance cases addressing a wide range of issues, including the proper interpretation of the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery, and Enforcement Act of 1989 (“FIRREA”), the proper application of statutes of limitation, the scope of the Dodd-Frank Act, the application of the Supreme Court’s Halliburton decision, shareholder activism, and administrative enforcement actions by the CFPB.
