Fulbright & Jaworski have released their fourth annual Litigation Trends Survey. (Available for download here upon completion of on-line form). The survey is based on interviews of in-house counsel at over 300 corporations (both here and in the U.K.).
The survey reports a slight decrease in the total number of lawsuits against corporations, although suits involving $20+ million remained at the same level as last year. Notably, 60% of American companies face at least one pending class action.
