According to the Fulbright & Jaworski 2005 Litigation Trends Survey:
Nearly 90% of U.S. corporations are engaged in some type of litigation, and the average company balances a docket of 37 U.S. lawsuits. For $1 billion-plus companies in the U.S., the average number of cases being juggled at home soars to 147.
Contract and labor/employment actions top the list of types of claims involved, for some companies representing as much as half of their litigation matters. Next on the list is personal injury followed by products liability and IP disputes. Click here for more details.
