Corporate counsels are preparing for a big year of litigation, with 42% of them anticipating an increase in legal disputes their companies will face in the next 12 months. That’s up from 34% last year, according to the annual litigation survey by Fulbright & Jaworski.

“Generally, litigation rises in an economic downturn as regulators tend to step up enforcement, laid-off workers head to court and companies need to file more suits in order to collect on money owed,” said Stephen C. Dillard, head of Fulbright’s global litigation practice.
