GOVERMENT REGULATION COULD SAVE US!
According to a survey of more than 400 lawyers conducted by Fulbright & Jaworski, regulation could be a huge driver of more work for attorneys in the next 12 months.
It seems that most of those surveyed thought that litigation would increase in the near future, although the answers about why the litigation would increase varied. More regulation, company growth and the poor economy where several of the top answers.
Among the respondents, regulations have caused more of them to retain outside legal counsel in 2011 than in 2010. And, the trend is predicted to continue. Approximately 1/3 of U.S. respondents expect litigation to increase next year. By sector, both insurance and energy led the way in expecting an increase in regulatory proceedings.
For you, the litigation attorney, this is great news! If the respondents of this survey are correct, litigation opportunities will increase throughout 2012. If you’re ready for a jump to a new firm or a new practice area, please contact us..
