The National Retail Federation (NRF) has announced the retirement of senior vice president and general counsel Mallory Duncan. Duncan will leave NRF at the end of August, but will continue to provide counsel on payments and other issues as a consultant. A veteran lawyer and lobbyist, Duncan has served with the NRF since 1994, guiding the retail industry association through legal, legislative and regulatory battles over credit card fees, bankruptcy law, privacy issues and other topics. He also managed the NRF General Counsels Forum, which is comprised of chief legal officers at many of the U.S.’s largest retail companies.
Prior to joining NRF, Duncan served as senior counsel in the Washington D.C. office of J.C. Penney. He was previously a senior attorney in the Office of Policy Planning at the Federal Trade Commission.
