NRF works with retail legal professionals to develop community benchmarks and advocate for policies that improve the retail industry.

General Counsels Forum

The General Counsels Forum is an invitation-only council, limited to the most senior legal officers of NRF’s retail membership. The committee meets twice each year to discuss changes in the law, practical approaches to addressing legal changes, litigation trends, and to share personal experiences on privacy, credit, compliance, regulatory updates, and other current legal issues. These topics are also the subject of conference calls held by the committee as-needed. The committee members regularly circulate questions to each other on a variety of legal issues and respond to them using NRF communication tools. For more information on this committee, contact Monica Anderson.

Other Committees

In-house attorneys discuss legal matters impacting retailers through NRF’s Lawyers Committee, ADA Task Force and other committees and groups as needed. Meetings and conference calls help members stay informed. View all upcoming events.


In addition to committee memos and listserv emails, retail legal professionals can track industry trends by viewing customizable government statistics and consumer data in the Retail Insight Center.
