Chief Litigation Counsel Association

The Chief Litigation Counsel Association (CLCA) is an organization that was established in 2000. The mission of CLCA is to be the premier organization exclusively for in-house attorneys serving in the role of chief litigation counsel for their companies.  

CLCA is comprised of the chief litigation counsel of a limited number of companies in various industries. Through semi-annual meetings (typically a spring meeting and a fall meeting), virtual sessions, a list serve, and other activities and events, the group focuses on networking, knowledge sharing, and educating members about recent developments, trends, and “best practices” with respect to the legal profession, legal departments, litigation management, and litigation.  

CLCA is a unique organization, unmatched in the legal industry. We provide creative solutions and bring organizations and people together.  An invitation to join CLCA, the only organization of its kind, is an indication that a chief litigation counsel and their organization have achieved remarkable and distinguished excellence in the legal profession, with accomplishments unmatched by most peers.  CLCA provides a refreshing alternative to traditional associations and conferences.
