The Commercial Litigation Outlook

Shrinking budgets for Commercial litigation continue for the 5th year, along with the related increase in demand for AFAs and smart staffing from law firms. Though the volume of cases is down, sectors such as Antitrust and Government Contracts still present an opportunity for well-positioned firms.

You will find the current Commercial litigation opportunities in the Energy, Health Care, Insurance, Pharmaceutical, and Telecom industries.
