Through extensive research, the BTI Litigation Outlook report, now in its tenth year, discovered the following key takeaways: that “Clients are searching for law firms who understand risk, complexity, and financial exposure.” Further, that “litigation is on a 3-year upward march,” and that “this is one of the best opportunities to develop new clients.” According to BTI, “Commercial Litigation is showing the biggest gains driven by disputes in supply chains, distribution agreements, and disputes arising from joint ventures and related business agreements. Employment Litigation is showing the 2nd biggest gains as wage and hour, discrimination, and equal pay suits gain more traction.”
