Regulatory investigations

2021 Annual Litigation Trends Survey

United States Publication March 7, 2022

Norton Rose Fulbright's 2021 Annual Litigation Trends Survey indicates that there is a consistent rise in concern in the legal landscape over regulatory proceedings and investigations.

Regulatory changes and the challenge of dealing with regulations across jurisdictions and international borders were increasingly cited as a source of concern.

Many of the above concerns are not just making waves on the litigation front. Legal leaders also opine that these issues could lead to more regulatory investigations.

Over the past three years, we have seen growing concern over regulatory proceedings and investigations. Data protection, ESG, multi-jurisdictional issues and regulatory changes were all listed by respondents as factors.

Financial institutions and energy respondents were among the sectors most concerned with regulatory issues, with both groups ranking regulatory investigations as their single greatest dispute-related concern.
