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.
Part of running a successful business is taking on the risk of litigation. Protect your business from liability and lawsuits with this quick guide.
The U.S. Chamber’s Institute for Legal Reform advocates 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 with leaders in almost every state, Congress, and around the world to defend the rule of law.
