Fullbright's Annual Litigation Trends Survey

Fulbright & Jaworski have released their 5th Annual Litigation Trends Survey.    According to a press release,

  • Nearly one-third of businesses expect an increase in the number of disputes they will face in the coming year.
  • One in two (50%) financial services businesses said they expect to see an increase in the number of disputes.
  • U.K. businesses seeing more regulatory activity from overseas regulators (SEC, DOJ and EU Commission) than OFT or FSA.
  • Average annual litigation spend for U.K. companies now stands at $2.8 million.
  • Despite dominating media headlines, subprime matters barely on the radar with 3% engaging outside counsel to assist in these matters.

You can download a copy of the survey for free (after completing a form).  The ABA Journal also reports on the survey.
