Founded in 1977, the U.S. Chamber 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 twelve experienced in-house litigators. All have significant private sector litigation experience. Nine have significant government litigation experience. Eleven clerked on a U.S. court of appeals; five clerked on the U.S. Supreme Court. The Litigation Center 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.
