Staff, Staff | February 18, 2015

Commercial Law League of America (CLLA) to Host 2nd Annual Capitol Hill Day Legislative Summit in Washington, D.C.

Chicago 2/16/2015 — The Commercial Law League of America is schedule to host its second Legislative Summit in Washington D.C., March 1st – 3rd, 2015. CLLA held its first D.C. Summit in February of 2014 and found the event to be very successful in building relationships with legislators, trade associations, and other nations. This year, CLLA plans to continue to utilize those relationships while focusing on the issue of venue reform. The CLLA supports bankruptcy venue reform because it constructively attempts to rebalance the interests of all parties in bankruptcy by making sure that the bankruptcy reorganization process remains within the regions and communities that have the most significant vested interest in the outcome.

The ad hoc group’s written statement is available on the portal CLLA has created on its website for information on venue reform.

CLLA’s Hill Day event also provides attendees the opportunity to learn about the important lobbying work CLLA is doing on their behalf and how to get their voice heard in Washington. Additionally, as part of CLLA’s ongoing mission to provide our members with new business opportunities, the D.C. Summit features collaborative face-to-face meetings with key embassy and trade organization representatives. Join CLLA in our efforts on Capitol Hill by contacting us at (800) 978-CLLA or
