About Us

The Lawsuit Reform Alliance of New York (LRANY) is a broad based coalition of hardworking New York business leaders, professionals and consumers who are committed to changing New York’s burdensome and expensive legal system to help create more jobs and energize our State’s economy.

New York’s unbalanced legal system drives jobs out of the state, threatens access to healthcare and contributes to the enormously high property tax burden for homeowners and businesses in New York.

Our organization is committed to:

  • Fighting for meaningful, commonsense reforms that will put an end to New York’s notorious “tort tax.”
  • Cracking down on frivolous lawsuits that burden our state’s economy and cost taxpayers and consumers billions each year.
  • Stopping the powerful trial lawyer lobby’s efforts to expand their influence and change laws that would make it easier for them to exploit New York’s legal system.

The powerful and positive effects of tort reform have been demonstrated by successes in other states such as Texas.  LRANY is fighting for these issues in New York to make our state a great place to work, live and do business.
