Who We Are

The NAM works with some of the most effective legal experts in the country, who fight—and win—every day for NAM members and manufacturing priorities. MCLA’s legal team works to rein in regulatory overreach, defend hard-fought legislative gains and ensure a level playing field for manufacturers—protecting manufacturers’ ability to grow, innovate and create jobs.

Our MCLA team leads the manufacturing sector’s involvement in litigation, challenging unfounded regulations and supporting key cases in court. We keep members informed through conference calls and webinars and educate the public with regular briefings and media appearances. And we provide invaluable assistance to our members, from a members-only library of background memos and resources to networking and information opportunities for in-house counsel.

  • Labor and Employment
  • Product and Civil Liability
