A recent survey conducted by Euromoney CS for Deloitte Legal revealed that, since 2020, litigation activity has intensified across every metric, with almost two-thirds of companies (64%) noting a heavier caseload since before the COVID-19 pandemic. Furthermore, most of the respondents agreed that cases are now more complex and expensive, and are taking longer to resolve. Our panellists, legal professionals from Spain, UK and Germany will discuss the results, along with a guest speaker – Alejandro Rubio, State Lawyer and Head of Legal at Navantia. What were the burning issues?

We’ll discuss:

  • The findings from the survey that gathered responses from 568 tax, finance, and legal professionals working for companies in the Americas, Asia-Pacific and EMEA
  • How greater financial risk has increased willingness to litigate, despite extra challenges
  • The escalated use of digitalisation and AI in the field

Learn more about the latest views in litigation activity.
