The Class Action Outlook for 2018

Litigation Outlook Logo 2018-01.png

Class Action litigation keeps on growing. Clients report any news or allegation of even potential wrongdoing is resulting in class action suits against them. This can be seen in the increased number of companies reporting class action suits jumping to 59.0% this year, up from 53.8% last year. Top legal decision makers see the nature of the claims becoming broader and driving ever bigger exposure. Higher risk and broader assertions translate into a willingness to pay higher rates.

We congratulate the following firms named by corporate counsel and legal decision makers for their Class Actions prowess in the just-released BTI Litigation Outlook 2018:
