While a fair and effective legal system allows business leaders to focus on hiring, innovating, and expanding, excessive or frivolous litigation crushes opportunities for private industry and consumers alike. A healthy legal system protects both employees and consumers while encouraging business growth.
When consumer complaints are settled by arbitration, they win more, faster.
The U.S. Chamber’s Institute for Legal Reform and Litigation Center advocate for a fair and equal civil justice system to foster a healthy business climate, protect employers from abusive litigation, and serve the interests of consumers, not trial lawyers. We work at every level of the U.S. judicial system and with leaders in almost every state, Congress, and around the world to defend the rule of law.

- Mar 30, 2021Did you know there is a better alternative for consumers and employees to settle disputes with companies than having to set foot in a courtroom? It’s called arbitration, and it costs us less time, money, and frustration than a lawsuit. Arbitration works for people like us who can’t afford an expensive attorney or don’t want to spend years fighting in court. In fact, recent economic studies show that both employees and consumers win more money, more often and more quickly in arbitration than in court.
- Feb 05, 2021U.S. Chamber of Commerce Executive Vice President and Chief Policy Officer Neil Bradley issued the following statement in response to Sen. Klobuchar’s introduction of antitrust legislation: "We look forward to engaging with Sen. Klobuchar on her proposed changes to antitrust laws. The antitrust laws have served American consumers and its economy well. Changing the legal standards for merger review, deciding who a company can do business with, relying on fines over remedies to restore competition, and expanding private litigation will not make America’s economy more vibrant and will have far-reaching implications impacting virtually every sector of our economy. "We urge Congress to be especially mindful of the impact of changes in our antitrust laws and to focus on ensuring federal antitrust agencies have the resources to do their job consistent with the law."
