Every law firm wants juicy complex litigation. Right now — this includes a whole smattering of new types of litigation.
COVID-19 matters are becoming a memory and the new types of matters are gaining a strong head of steam. Clients want law firms ahead of this curve — and this is where the most complex work lies.
Clients want firms moving upmarket that are able to handle the new types of matters and better handle the old. They tell us only 55 law firms (out of the 650 or so firms competing for litigation work) are ahead of this market-shifting curve. These BTI Upmarket Movers are gaining more work — and more complex work — at much higher than market rates.
