Female US Chamber VP Named To Most Influential Lawyer List

 WASHINGTON —The U.S. Chamber of Commerce congratulated Lisa A. Rickard, executive vice president of the U.S. Chamber and president of the Institute for Legal Reform (ILR), for being named one of the 34 most influential lawyers in the United States and one of only four in the category of Government Affairs, according to The National Law Journal.


“This recognition of Lisa’s amazing work is further evidence of her much-deserved place as one of this country’s leading legal advocates for the business community,” said Thomas J. Donohue, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber.  “Her efforts have highlighted the enormous toll that frivolous lawsuits take on jobs and the economy.  With her strong leadership and counsel, the Chamber will continue these efforts and look to change the legal culture that has resulted in the explosion of litigation abuse not only in the United States, but increasingly around the world.”

At the helm of the Chamber’s Institute for Legal Reform since March 2003, Rickard has led multifaceted campaigns to change our nation’s legal culture targeted at legislators, the courts, and the public.  She has directed comprehensive reform campaigns at the state and federal levels and is a leading opponent to the global trend of third-party litigation funding, which poses substantial risks of major increases in litigation.  As executive vice president at the Chamber, Rickard leads several strategic initiatives involving cross-divisional U.S. Chamber teams, including the Workforce Freedom Initiative, a grassroots advocacy campaign to preserve freedom in the American workplace.

The National Law Journal’s selection of awardees was based upon 10 specific practice areas during the past five years and the attorneys within those areas who demonstrated an ability “to shape the world and the way it works.”  The recognized attorneys will be honored during The National Law Journal’s annual dinner, scheduled for June 8, 2011 at Gotham Hall in New York.
