Unpredictable replaced uncertain. Unexpected litigation is rampant. Novel and complex claims are driving a new stream of litigation. All this creates a host of new business development opportunities.

And this is the tip of the iceberg. Our brand new research with more than 280 corporate counsel reveals the key trends underpinning another year of litigation growth. The top 8 are:

  1. Litigation spending on outside counsel is growing again in 2024 for the 4th year
  2. The caseload is growing for the 4th year in a row — but spending is growing faster
  3. 87% of clients plan to increase or hold spending steady in 2024
  4. 6 segments within 8 industries are especially robust
  5. Complex and high-stakes matters see the biggest growth in cases
  6. Client interest in settling surges — but without sacrificing aggressive defense
  7. Clients are no longer searching far and wide for the perfect law firms
  8. Clients are more open to hiring new law firms than they have been in years
