For media inquiries, please contact Cynthia Eveleth-Havens at [email protected].

DENVER – The Colorado Chamber of Commerce today announced the formation of two critical industry alliances – the Technology Alliance and Legal Reform Alliance. The new partnerships are initiatives of Vision 2033, the Colorado Chamber’s 10-year action plan to improve the state’s competitiveness.

“Our goal is to elevate Colorado’s economy and position us as a top state for business across the board,” said Loren Furman, president and CEO of the Colorado Chamber. “These key alliances target two major risk factors to the state’s future economic growth – protecting our technology industry and improving our costly legal climate. We’re uniting industry experts to collaborate on statewide, solutions-driven reforms and policies. Together, these efforts will help bolster our broader business climate and secure our economic future.”

The alliances will hold regular meetings beginning this month. Additional details on each alliance are below:

About the Legal Reform Alliance:

Colorado’s legal climate has been deteriorating – the state is currently ranked 21st for our litigation environment, which is down from 16th in 2016 and ninth in 2008. The Colorado Chamber is taking action, broadening its efforts to improve our legal climate, advance reforms, and restore our competitiveness.

The Legal Reform Alliance includes representation of legal counsel and businesses committed to reversing the trajectory of Colorado’s legal climate. The alliance will fight legislation, court cases, and regulations that create costly litigation to employers. Areas of focus include: class action lawsuits, damage caps, construction defects, punitive damages, private rights of action, medical malpractice, personal injury, and more.

Members of the alliance include: the Colorado Bankers Association, Colorado for Small Business, Comcast, COPIC, Farmers Insurance, Greenberg Traurig, Holland & Hart, Independent Community Bankers of Colorado, Jackson Kelly PLLC, Lewis Roca, PhRMA, Professional Insurance Agents of Colorado, Robinson & Henry, Sherman & Howard, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Litigation Center and Institute for Legal Reform.

About the Technology Alliance:

In the Colorado Chamber’s Vision 2033 action plan, the state’s technology industry is identified as a strong industry asset cluster helping to drive economic growth. The Chamber believes we have the opportunity to be a leading state for technology growth – but we must advance the right policies to attract tech companies and jobs.

The Chamber’s Technology Alliance will unite the voice of statewide tech industry competitiveness in Colorado. The alliance will fight legislation and regulations that threaten Colorado’s national technology leadership, promote solutions that increase the state’s tech competitiveness, and educate state leaders on the industry.

Members of the alliance include: Amazon, AT&T, Comcast, Delve, DoorDash, Google, Instacart, Liberty, Lockheed Martin, Lumen, Maxar, Meta, Microsoft, NextEra Energy, RELX, United Launch Alliance, Verizon, Wipfli, and Zivaro.
