2021 Annual Litigation Trends Survey

Global Publication March 7, 2022

For almost two decades, global law firm Norton Rose Fulbright has conducted its Annual Litigation Trends Survey, analyzing litigation trends to assess the state of the legal landscape and consider their impact on organizations.

We have surveyed thousands of legal professionals, including general counsel from global corporations, as well as those from boutique startups.

Over the past two years, challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic required us to adapt our approach. We added in-depth discussions to better explore emerging trends and offer our perspective.

To mark our 2021 Annual Litigation Survey, we gathered responses from more than 250 general counsel and in-house litigation leaders across the United States.

We found that most participants felt their teams had largely come to grips with the new normal of remote and hybrid working, but feared a host of evolving trends could pose financial and reputational risks to their organizations.
