Are annual litigation expenses increasing and, if so, which industries are most likely to be impacted? Should companies be concerned about the prospect of regulatory investigations? How much does the duty to preserve electronic data cost organizations? Validated information about the sources of litigation-related costs offers legal department leaders the opportunity to make needed changes to their operations.

In this CLE presentation, a panel of experts from University of Chicago Law School, Norton Rose Fulbright and FTI Consulting will review key findings from recent research on corporate litigation spending and deliver key insights into:

  • The scope, sources, and costs of data preservation obligations as well as the potential for reduction
  • Overall litigation trends and which industries are most likely to be affected
  • The impact of cloud computing, social media, and data protection on litigation costs
