2021 Annual Litigation Trends Survey

United States Publication March 7, 2022

Norton Rose Fulbright's 2021 Annual Litigation Trends Survey indicates that cybersecurity and data protection were cited as main drivers of emerging dispute concerns.

A remote workforce and increased reliance on technology exacerbated the impact of cybersecurity and data protection issues for a great majority of respondents.

Respondents anticipate that cybersecurity and data protection will be a top driver of new disputes in the next several years. Recent Litigation Trends reports have illuminated growing concern over cybersecurity and data protection disputes across sectors. In 2021, two-thirds (66%) of respondents said they felt more exposed to these types of disputes, up from less than half (44%) in 2020.
