Who We Are

Founded in 1977, the U.S. Chamber Litigation Center is a separately incorporated affiliate of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.  The Litigation Center fights for business at every level of the U.S. judicial system, on virtually every issue affecting business, including class actions and arbitration, labor and employment, energy and environment, securities and corporate governance, financial regulation, free speech, preemption, government contracts, and criminal law.

The Litigation Center is staffed by a team of experienced in-house litigators—six previously clerked for Justices on the U.S. Supreme Court.  Five have significant government litigation experience at the Department of Justice, Department of Homeland Security, and the White House.  All have significant private sector litigation experience. It retains the nation’s top lawyers, including former U.S. Solicitors General and other executive branch officers, veterans of the Supreme Court bar, and former state court judges and officials, to serve as outside counsel.
