The Year Ahead: Developments in Global Litigation and Arbitration in 2021

This article first appeared on Global Arbitration News by Baker McKenzie, here.

The Year Ahead – our publication looking at key developments in global litigation and arbitration for 2021 – is now available in EnglishSpanish, and Mandarin.

COVID-19 and its effects have triggered many disputes, with litigation volumes in some jurisdictions having already doubled, and our clients expect us to help them spot trends and plan for the future.

Our report features economic analysis from The Economist Intelligence Unit and legal analysis from our team of more than 1,000 disputes specialists across 77 offices.

In the report, key risk areas are identified, and the factors likely to drive commercial disputes in each industry sector are highlighted, alongside specific local developments in 30 jurisdictions.

Let us hope for a brighter year to come after a challenging 2020. Please contact us if we can help you to evaluate the post-pandemic horizon for your organization.
