IP Litigation is poised to be the fastest growing segment within Litigation at 5.15% in 2019. The number of companies expecting significant IP Litigation dropped slightly. Increased spending plus fewer matters equals higher hourly rates and larger spending on each matter. These dynamics offer law firms opportunity to develop bigger relationships—more than offsetting the drop in companies with IP Litigation needs. Look for the biggest increases to come in Chemicals, High Tech, Manufacturing and Pharmaceuticals.
