“The Retail Litigation Center engages in strategic initiatives that have driven high quality advocacy for retailers on issues of concern and produced extraordinary results. The work of the RLC in South Dakota v. Wayfair exemplifies the value creating results it has achieved for retailers. The new Defense Division provides an incomparable opportunity for retail corporate counsel to work together to help protect our companies by anticipating and understanding litigation trends.”
