A Situation Map for Litigators

by Vault Law Editors | October 21, 2009

Fulbright & Jaworski has released the results of its sixth-annual Litigation Trends Survey Report, a detailed situation map of the global litigation scene based on “the thinking of senior corporate counsel regarding the near-term future prospects for dispute resolution and related matters.”  Aspiring litigators would do well to have a look at the findings, which provide an expansive view of the lawsuit landscape not necessarily available to BigLaw’s rank and file. 

Among the report’s highlights:

         For the third year in a row, there is an increase in respondents expecting more disputes over the next 12 months.

         The incidence of companies reporting corruption/bribery investigations over the past 12 months has nearly doubled from last year.

         More than a third of respondents have increased their use of alternative fee arrangements because of the economic downturn.
