Crowell & Moring Releases Fourth Annual Litigation Forecast Report and Second Annual Regulatory Forecast

Washington, D.C. – January 19, 2016: Crowell & Moring LLP is pleased to announce the publication of its fourth annual "Litigation Forecast 2016: What Corporate Counsel Need to Know in the Coming Year," and its second annual "Regulatory Forecast 2016: What Corporate Counsel Need to Know in the Coming Year."

The Litigation Forecast [PDF] examines the latest litigation developments impacting corporations, such as a report on the California complex court program, the increasing caseload at the Patent Trial and Appeal Board, and how government agencies are showing an increasing willingness to litigate antitrust cases. It spotlights trends impacting industry areas from government contracts to health care, and it features the fourth-annual jurisdictional analysis that highlights data trends that can help shape complex litigation strategy.  

The Regulatory Forecast [PDF] provides an in-depth analysis of a range of issues impacting U.S. and international businesses, from the intensified regulatory impact of President Obama's final year, to best practices and new developments in compliance, and an in-depth look at how the California drought has heightened questions about dealing with scarce natural resources. This year's edition also includes a special roundtable on managing crisis PR, as well as a range of industry stories covering areas such as consumer products, cybersecurity, and energy. The Forecast also includes a special feature detailing the changing post-9/11 regulatory universe governing national and cybersecurity.

Styles, Crowell & Moring chair.
