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.
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.
