NFIB's Small Business Legal Center works for your small business, supporting you in the nation's courts and serving as a legal resource for small businesses.
The NFIB Small Business Legal Center is the voice for small business in the nation's courts and the legal resource for small business owners nationwide. Simply, we litigate and educate for small business. The Legal Center is not a legal defense fund.
The Legal Center is the advocate for small business in the courts. We do what federal and state NFIB lobbyists do, but instead of lobbying legislators we lobby judges through briefs and oral arguments in court. We tell judges how the decision they make in a given case will impact small businesses nationwide. Importantly, we only initiate lawsuits and file amicus ("friend-of-the court") briefs in precedent-setting cases. That means we go to court only in those cases that will impact many small business owners.
Recent estimates show that the thousands of pages of federal regulations alone cost Americans more than $1 trillion. With so many rules to keep track of, it's not surprising that many small business owners don't know or understand the laws that apply to them. That's where the Legal Center comes in. We have guidance documents that cover laws important to small businesses nationwide.
In order for the NFIB Small Business Legal Center to enter more cases and develop more small-business legal tools, we need your help. The Legal Center is a 501(c)(3) public interest law firm charged with representing small business. Contributions are tax-deductible and can be made from personal or corporate accounts.

The Legal Center cannot offer legal advice but we can be a legal resource and help point you in the right direction to receive necessary legal help.
