How the CLF started

The Commercial Litigators’ Forum (“CLF”) was established in early July 2002 by a number of leading dispute resolution practices (i.e partners and associates from the committee law firms). It has representatives from all the principal litigation practices participating in its activities. The CLF is now active in London and New York.


The CLF operates through an informal structure with regular meetings at which events are planned and programmes organised. Law firms are kept in contact through e-mail, and the Forum is open to new initiatives or lawyers who wish to become further involved in the management of the organisation. A current list of the committee members can be viewed within the committee pages.

There is a long-standing relationship between the CLF, the National Pro Bono Centre and the GC100. The CLF is committed to supporting the aims of the National Pro Bono Centre and the GC100 supports this initiative.

Service Providers who wish to align themselves with the CLF are invited to become annual sponsors; enabling listing in the CLF Litigation Directory, invitations to attend CLF events and other marketing opportunities.
