Raymond Kolls and Jeffery Stec
January 25, 2023
Raymond Kolls and Jeffery Stec analyze why complex litigation will boom this year, the types of cases to expect, and how attorneys can best collaborate with expert witnesses.
Litigation today is more complex than ever before. Burgeoning consumer class actions, big tech antitrust matters, and high-stakes patent disputes involve more parties, data, and technically advanced issues. Emerging risk areas like environmental, social, and governance (ESG) and crypto only add to the complexity.
Complex litigation is pervasive, particularly in the federal system. Multidistrict litigation now accounts for over 70 percent of the federal civil caseload.
