Norton Rose Fulbright's 2021 Annual Litigation Trends Survey

Class actions

2021 Annual Litigation Trends Survey

United States Publication March 7, 2022

Norton Rose Fulbright's 2021 Annual Litigation Trends Survey indicates that class action risk is related to traditional product liability disputes, but also increasingly connected with data protection and ESG matters.

Survey respondents reported an increased concern over class action disputes largely driven by litigation related to cybersecurity and the environment.

The proportion of respondents citing class actions as among their most common dispute types has doubled since 2020. While the major driver appears to be cybersecurity and data protection incidents, there is also a rising concern over ESG-related class actions.
